Join Andy Bromberger, Musician and Lecturer of Classical Music, for an online talk tomorrow 15 September 11am as part of @the_joan's Art & Music Talks series.  The piano was invented about 300 years ago. There were keyboard instruments before this time but none gave the composer both the ability to play dynamics and a sound loud enough for a concert performance. Then the piano was invented by Bartolomeo Cristofori in 1700. Its impact on the musical has been likened to the invention of the steam engine in the industrial world.  All tickets are $15 and includes a Zoom link to access on the day of the event.
