Newly Renovated Keyboard Exhibit with Audio Tour On Display and Online...



Music at Hand: Keyboard Instruments from Four Centuries,
the newly renovated permanent exhibit of keyboard instruments

in the second floor gallery of the Collection opened in December 2012. 

The exhibit features 26 instruments--including a chamber organ, three clavichords, fourteen harpsichord family instruments, and

nine pianos--from the museum's holdings of over 100 keyboards.

To supplement the display, an audio tour is available. Visitors to
the museum can use either their own smart phones or i-pods provided on request to listen to a spoken description of each instrument as well as a brief recorded musical example for each of the thirteen instruments that are maintained. The audio tour is also available online at:

The exhibit was organized by Curator Nicholas Renouf assisted by museum interns Wai Lau, Ian Petruzzi, and Colin Meinecke.
