The beautiful string family makes up the largest portion of the orchestra. Now you can explore this family of instruments up-close through sight and sound! It includes the violin, viola, cello, and double bass, as well as the harp, guitar, and ukulele. Sound is created on these instruments through the vibration of the strings when they are bowed, plucked, or strummed.
