Music in the Stacks: Re-discovering the Ney

December 3, 2019 - 7:00pm
Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center, Main Lobby, 3420 Walnut Street

 

Recital on the Turkish reed Ney. The recital is part of an ongoing exhibit project about four reed-Ney instruments acquired by the Museum of the University of Pennsylvania as a gift given by Sarah Frishmuth, renowned collector of antique musical instruments at the beginning of the Twentieth Century. The recital offers an organological contribution informed by the ethnomusicological research on Muslim mysticism and listening by Juan Castrillón (PhD student, Penn). This recital will take place in the Albrecht Music Library gallery space (far West side, 4th floor, Van Pelt).

 

This concert is free and open to the public.
