Collection of Musical Instruments closes for renovations

As the academic year comes to an end, we are looking forward to making some much-needed improvements to the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments building at 15 Hillhouse Ave. Restoration work on the exterior of the building will necessitate the Collection being closed from May 3 through fall 2019.

To prepare for the renovation work, staff at the Collection and the School of Music have worked with the construction team and with fine-art handlers to ensure the safeguarding of the Collection’s instruments.

Throughout the renovation project, Collection staff will be relocated to the Adams Center for Musical Arts at the School of Music. From there, we will continue to work on the upcoming brass-instrument exhibit, which is scheduled to open November 2019.

The Collection’s concert series will take place in 2020. Please visit for updates as they become available. For the most up-to-date news, please consider joining our email list at

A glimpse at the National Museum of Ghana

IMG_4607-sculptureFor the Yale Concert Band and Yale Percussion Group, Saturday, May 24 was a day to explore Accra. Many people chose to visit the National Museum of Ghana, whose three main galleries deal with Ghana’s past, its traditions, and with the country’s arts culture.

The museum includes exhibits on prehistoric Africa; sculptures and paintings; and examples of traditional attire, musical instruments, and sacred tribal artifacts.
