Musical Instruments Gallery Talk and Demonstration

Local performer Olav Chris Henriksen will discuss the history, construction, and playing techniques for instruments from the 19th-century guitar-making tradition that began with the shop of Johann Georg Stauffer in Vienna. Period repertoire will be demonstrated on instruments from the MFA’s collection by Johann Anton Stauffer (about 1833) and Christian Frederick Martin in Nazareth, Pennsylvania (about 1840).
