Lecture: The Story and Anatomy of String Instruments

June 29 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Free

From churches to boudoirs to concert halls, string instruments have played a historically powerful role in musical settings of all kinds. Join writer and violist Nora Krohn for a discussion of how string instruments developed in conjunction with the social function of music, and how those changes inspired the composers who wrote for them. Curated and moderated by Sarah E.R. Grosman, TBMS Community Programs Manager and specialist in community-based arts practices.

The Summer Daytime Lecture series features lectures by TBMS faculty members, presented in partnership with Lenox Hill Neighborhood House at St. Peter’s Church. The free event series is open to the public, but RSVP is required.

Lectures are held on Thursdays from 10:30-11:30am at St. Peter’s Church, 619 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10022, just around the corner from TBMS!
