“A special temporary exhibition, ‘Clearly Clarinets: Tools of Human Expression,’ will be on display through Aug. 31 at the National Music Museum on the campus of the University of South Dakota.
There will be a variety of clarinets with more than 50 never-before-displayed instruments and related materials. Browse through the display to discover the ancient and more recent ancestors of the modern clarinet. See from what kind of materials clarinets have been made as well as how the keys and fingerings have developed. Highlights of the exhibition include bright green and dazzling pink clarinets and a silver ‘Thermos’ clarinet.
‘Clearly Clarinets’ can be viewed Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., and Sundays from 2 to 5 p.m. Admission on Fridays is always free.”
