Mini-MEMS Lunch and Learn

Musical Instruments of the Renaissance on Zoom

Wednesday, October 28, 2020

Want to hear a racket?  Come learn about musical instruments of the Renaissance!  (Yes, a racket IS an instrument!)  Dr. Lindsay Johnson will demo a variety of Renaissance wind instruments, from the racket (an early bass double reed) to the crumhorn (sounds like a glorified kazoo!) to the shawm (an early oboe) to the recorder) so much better than what you learned in 3rd grade!).  Come hear what these instruments sound like, see how they work, and laugh at Dr. Johnson's attempts to play them (she's actually a violinist).  Curiosity encouraged.
