Royal Academy of Music Museum SOLD OUT
Visit | Royal Academy of Music
Tuesday 13 March 2018 - 11:30 until 12:30
The Royal Academy of Music is the oldest conservatoire in Britain. This tour of its museum tells the story of music through rare musical instruments and the role of the academy itself in musical history. In 2005, Art Fund helped the academy acquire the world-famous Viotti ex-Bruce Stradivarius violin, on display in the Strings Gallery. In the Piano Gallery, an assistant demonstrates the historic pianos and harpsichords, revealing the development of keyboard instruments over the past three centuries. There is also the opportunity to visit the temporary display: ‘The Spencer Collection: A Musical Banquet’, showcasing highlights from lutenist Robert ‘Bob’ Spencer’s extraordinary collection of instruments, manuscripts, printed music and curiosities dating from the 15th to the 20th centuries.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
