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.

Belated Happy Thanksgiving!

It has been an absolute pleasure visiting with people from our local community and area, as well as those visiting from around the world.

The Music Maker

Victor Groulx didn’t just play music, he created it by making exquisite Violins and Violas. Muriel Groulx has generously donated one of each to our Community Museum.  Please join us as we celebrate with her, the man and his music.

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!
