What I like best about this entertaining and informative lecture/demonstration series is the intimate small group atmosphere it provides for its audience. Each session features one or more items from the Museum of Fine Art‘s own world-wide collection of musical instruments. A distinguished guest expert talks about the instrument(s) while treating the audience to a personal performance. Aside from enjoying a performance from up-close, audience members are also afforded the added benefit of being permitted to ask individual questions in this intimate atmosphere. As far as ethnic instruments are concerned, future sessions will feature the Rababa (Egyptian fiddle), Tar (Middle Eastern lute), and a musical tour of various instruments from around the world. Check the schedule for details.
