Music history

This gallery takes you back to parts of our music history. Everyone needs music to get through certain parts of your life and it is depicted in this gallery dating back centuries. 

The music box was a big thing back in the day. It was used in many different ways like playing songs at a certain time of the day. This sculpture shows the magnitude of how royal they were.
This painting depicts a town watching something like a band playing music for them as they look on and enjoy. Reminds me of a pep rally with the band playing at a football game.
This program is like poster you see hanging outside of a movie theatre or stadiums today. Its very cool to see that they did this for shows back in those days and that it still goes on today.
This painting shows a mother playing music for her children while they sing. Reminds me of mothers singing to kids so that they can fall asleep.
The flute is said to be the first instrument that was ever created. In this sculpture, you can see the flute being played. Which is also pretty cool because we still use the flute today.
These are what as known as Kettle drums or Timpani and they were first made out of skin and copper. They are very beautiful drums and are still used in orchestras and bands today.
This painting is very beautiful as it shows a man teaching a woman how to play a guitar. I like how it seems unplanned with wonderful details down to the music book and dog sitting there bored.
This painting of David is beautiful. I like how the people are just standing there listening to the wonderful sound coming off of the harp.
I love the effects on this ticket. Looks like it was used in Microsoft word with word art, but it wasn't. The design and the effort put into this ticket are amazing and are nicer than tickets today.
This painting is an example of how music helps people. St Francis is sitting there sad while the angel is playing music to cheer him up. He holds onto the cross which it looks like he sort of praying
