Saline's nationally significant high school fiddle ensemble
Since 1994, The Saline Fiddlers have set the standard for extracurricular music programs in the United States. The group began with a simple idea: introduce an alternative style of music education to public school students. It has grown into a model of instruction and motivation that is being emulated across the nation, and it's a brilliant example of what young adults can and will achieve if given a direction and the opportunity to explore and pursue their own interests. The Saline Fiddlers present an energetic, polished stage show that includes music, song and dance from the traditions of American folk fiddle, bluegrass, jazz, western swing and Celtic music. The Saline Fiddlers' history includes more than 1,000 performances all over the United States and in several foreign countries.
