Winter Fair Music: Fortepiano & Clavichord Explorations

Thursday, December 26, 2019 11:00 AM - 4:30 PM Boys' School






Enjoy music played on our c.1815 Kearsing and Sons fortepiano and on our clavichord, a historic copy of an instrument built by David Tannenberg.  Discover what makes our piano different than the one you have at home. Take a look inside the case and watch the hammers striking the strings. Learn more about what makes a clavichord different from a harpsichord.  View copies of Tannenberg’s original design plans for our clavichord and take a turn playing the instrument if you wish!

Music funding provided by Come Hear North Carolina: NC Arts Council & NC Dept of Natural & Cultural Resources.
