A Musical Evening: Franklin's Glass Armonica

This event is located in or near XXXXXXXXXXX
Location: Benjamin Franklin House, 36 Craven Street, London
Date: Mon 6 Aug

In 1762, Franklin premiered his new musical invention, the glass armonica which has been devised a year earlier at 36 Craven Street. Ethereal sounds are produced from rotating glass bowls which inspired compositions by Mozart, Beethoven, (JC) Bach, and more recently musicians like Jarvis Cocker and Damon Albarn. House Operations Manager, Sally James, will talk about the fascinating history of the glass armonica and perform excerpts from pieces written for the instrument.
