Making Music - An exhibition of Early Musical Instruments at the University of Sheffield
13 June to 16 September 2015
The exhibition showcases the University of Sheffield Department of Music’s collection of original and replica historical musical instruments. The collection was assembled during the ‘early music revival’ of the 1970s and 1980s and provides an opportunity to celebrate the role of the University, the City of Sheffield and Yorkshire in the development and growth of that movement. Visitors will have a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the sounds and sensations of early music.
The exhibition is a joint production between the University Library and the Department of Music. Thanks to Dr Tim Shephard, Serenella Sessini and Laura Stefanescu (Department of Music) and Andrew Moore (University Library).
