Music in the Home at the Clemenceau
Music in the Home will be the emphasis of the last Friday of the month series at the Clemenceau Heritage Museum, for June, July and August.
Pollyanna Sorensen will be at the Museum 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with several instruments from her extensive collection, along with interesting verbal and printed information about Music in the Home in the early 1900s. She’ll be bringing some popular instruments from those times: dulcitone, dulcimer, uke, mouthbow, spoons, and limberjack, which she’ll talk about and demonstrate. She’ll be in the Family Room of the museum, where a player piano, part of the museum’s permanent collection, will set the atmosphere for family music.
The Museum is located on the corner of Willard and Mingus in Cottonwood; admission is free, donations welcome. Call (928) 634-2868 or visit www.ClemenceauMuseum.org on the web.
