Today is National Violin Day

Today is National Violin Day

National Violin Day is celebrated annually on December 13th. The violin, sometimes informally called a fiddle, is a string instrument, usually with four strings tuned in perfect fifths. It is the smallest, highest-pitched member of the violin family of string instruments, which includes the viola and cello. The violin acquired most of its modern characteristics in 16th-century Italy, with some further modifications occurring in the 18th century. Violinists and collectors particularly prize the instruments made by the Gasparo da Salò, Giovanni Paolo Maggini, Stradivari, Guarneri and Amati families from the 16th to the 18th century in Brescia and Cremona and by Jacob Stainer in Austria.

131 years ago today, the French cabaret Moulin Rouge opened its doors on the Boulevard Clichy in the Montmartre district of Paris. The venue was famous for its modern can-can dance performances and soon became the center of the Parisian entertainment district. It was considered the essence of Belle Epoque Paris where artists, businessmen, the middle classes, elegant women and visitors converged to attend avant-garde performances. The so-called “Bal du Moulin Rouge” was immortalized in posters by the famous artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Original works still adorn the foyer today. The “Moulin Rouge” helped many dancers to popularity and fame, among them “La Goulue.”
