About the event

In 1762, Franklin premiered his new musical invention, the glass armonica which had been devised at 36 Craven Street. Mallory Horrill, Front of House and Marketing Manager will demonstrate how ethereal sounds are produced from rotating glass bowls which have inspired compositions by Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, and more recently, rock musicians like Jarvis Cocker and Damian Albarn.
