Unravel the mysteries of earlier keyboard instruments, taken from "behind the glass" in museum exhibits into twenty-first century reality. This course offers a rare opportunity to interact with historical keyboard instruments and learn about how they evolved and how they relate to one another. Concertgoers, advanced music students, and early music enthusiasts will learn more about instruments such as the harpsichord, clavichord, and the fortepiano. This series features an instrument exhibit and lecture recital using instruments from the Michael and Sonja Koerner Collection at the Royal Conservatory. The final lecture recital will be given by Lawrence Wiliford, tenor, and Andrea Botticelli.
