Two new interactive exhibits at The Schubert Club Museum

Listen to our letters and compare your handwriting to famous composers’!

Now in addition to viewing several of our extraordinary composer letters from the Gilman Ordway Manuscript Collection, you can enjoy hearing letters from Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Mozart read in German, French and English translations. You can also delve into the work of a graphologist who analyzed the handwriting of these composers and compare your own handwriting and personality traits to the composers.

Take a ride on the string-cercycle, pipe-cercycle and xylo-cycle

New in the Music Experimentation Room, experiment with three new percussion instruments created by Mary Ellen Childs. Take a ride on the string-cercycle, the pipe-cercycle and the xylo-cycle and discover the many ways you can make music on these unique instruments. Hear a performance with these instruments on November 18 by CRASH ensemble (pictured above) as part of our Live at the Museum series of events.
