Walking tours of Yale’s historic Collection of Musical Instruments

June 16, 2010

One of the leading resources of its kind, the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments includes nearly one thousand musical instruments from antiquity to the present, from both Western and non-Western traditions. The International Festival of Arts and Ideas, taking place now in New Haven, offers two walking tours of the Collection: Friday, June 18 and Sunday, June 20 at 2 pm.

Both tours will be led by curators Susan Thompson and Nicholas Renouf. Guest artist Andrew Appel, harpsichordist, fortepianist and director of the Four Nations Ensemble, will join the tour on Sunday, June 20, prior to his 7 pm concert in Sprague Memorial Hall. The tour will last about 90 minutes. Meet at the Collection, 15 Hillhouse Avenue, New Haven.

Presented by the Yale School of Music.

Tickets for this tour are $10. Visit the event page for more info.
