Seven Centuries of Keyboard Instruments

Carolina Music Museum in Greenville presents “Seven Centuries of Keyboard Instruments,” taking the visitor through a tour of important keyboard developments, from the early 14th century with the ‘Eschequer d’ Anglis’ or English Chekker, to the harpsichord and clavichord, and forward to the 18th and 19th century piano, and then electric keyboard instruments of the 20th and 21st century. Visitors will see and hear important examples of these keyboards which make use of the broad collection now at the museum, featuring not only the instruments known to Bach, Beethoven, and Chopin, but keyboards of a type used by The Animals, Led Zeppelin, and themes for TV shows like Seinfeld. The exhibition is on view Tuesdays through Sundays, through April 24th.
