World renowned fiddle sensation and Oklahoma Musical Ambassador, Kyle Dillingham, has performed his magic in over 25 countries, which has electrified and energized audiences around the world. The Enid native picked up the violin when he was nine, and eight years later, he gave two featured performances at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
Though he had an attractive offer to continue in Nashville, Kyle always believed that his musical talents could serve Oklahoma best by staying in Oklahoma. Named Oklahoma’s Musical Ambassador by Governor Henry, Kyle has helped develop over thirty relationships between universities in Oklahoma and overseas universities, and brought attention to the name of Oklahoma in 30 countries. He has also performed in over 50 schools in Oklahoma. He was a featured performer for the King of Malaysia, the Princess of Thailand, Singapore’s National Day Celebration, and he was televised throughout all of China. A frequent visitor to Washington D.C, he has performed for the Japanese, Thai, Romanian, and Saudi Arabian Ambassadors, to name a few.
