Music in the Museum Event: May 18, 2019
Brien Engel’s passion is the glass harp, an instrument comprised of 50 wine glasses, which he plays by rubbing his fingers on their rims. This enchanting art form dates back to the 18th century, and Brien is one of very few modern practitioners. His repertoire includes pieces by Mozart, Bach, and Haydn as well as popular standards, ice cream truck songs, and the occasional heavy metal request. He’ll be playing from his eclectic repertoire, and interspersing some history and science, as well as a segment of musical saw and a miniature glass armonica, invented by Benjamin Franklin.
