Music Maker Exhibit Unveiled October 5th at Mattawa Museum!

Victor Groulx didn’t just play music, he created it by making exquisite violins and violas. Muriel Groulx, Victor’s wife, generously donated one of each to the Mattawa Museum.  Family, friends, musicians, visitors, celebrated the man and his music on October 5th at the Mattawa Museum.

From good old down home fiddling, to classical music, Victor’s hand made violins and violas make beautiful music. Musical guests Shorty Sauve, Sandra Glabb, Nancy White, and Tomas Milczarek entertained all attendees with the sound of music.

Join us for our newest exhibit…

The Music Maker

In an early interview, Victor was asked “What’s the difference between a violin and a fiddle”?  He said, “You carry a violin in a case, you carry your fiddle in a sac”.

Come see our Music Maker Exhibit, Saturday, October 5th at 1 pm at the Museum.

There will be music in the house!
