Attention: Unique and rare music enthusiasts

Unique and rare music enthusiasts: rare exquisitely ornamented musical instruments, graphic scores, psychedelic posters, and early sheet music showcase the myriad design elements in music through the centuries, from all corners of the world. This exhibit draws from the private collections of prominent personalities in the Vancouver musical community. These treasures are usually hidden from public view and many are on display for the first time.

This exhibit is part of an initiative to create a museum in Vancouver dedicated to musical instruments and associated paraphernalia with a worldwide scope that emphasizes the rich musical community and heritage of British Columbia. All genres of music are to be included from baroque to world, country to jazz, hip-hop to electronic.

A matinee concert demonstration on the history of free reeds and squeezeboxes will take place on Saturday Nov. 28th at 3pm, featuring harmonica giant Keith Bennet, extreme multi-instrumentalist Randy Raine-Reusch, Chinese sheng whiz Tony Chan and other guests.
