They are very smart up there although some snarky people may say they only like me because their brains are frozen. Either way I love em.
Keyboard Instruments in the Carolinas. The Broadwood vertical grand. Arrayed about are spinets, single and double manual harpsichords, 18th- and 19th-century grands and square pianos, and the commanding gold silk-adorned Broadwood vertical grand. About 40 instruments dating as early as will be available, some rotating in and out of display.
Selected highlights include the Kirkman spinet, the Zumpe square piano, the highly ornate John Geib piano, the Broadwood grand with ties to Chopin, and various 18th- and early 19th-century squares by North American makers. Since the southeastern colonies and later states were primarily connected to England, it follows that English makers are well represented, but there are also treasures from North America and Europe such as the fine Viennese grand by Johann Schanz.
The Gestation of a Museum As always, a lifelong passion begins with first exposure. His interest simmered in the background as he earned degrees in physics and developed an illustrious professional career in research and development.
It was the classic sad-looking, decrepit relic complete with animal nests.
The path of questions along the way to reviving this instrument to playing condition led to connections and friendships with private collectors, restorers, and museum curators already deep into the historic keyboard instruments world.
One contact, one instrument, one query — each led to another, growing the network, collection, and knowledge base. In time, Strange thought of showing the instruments to others. Accepting an invitation to speak at the Greenville County Museum of Art inhe brought along a few instruments, thinking there might be the 25 or so attendees such events usually muster.
When nearly people filled the room and balcony, Strange realized the music and stories told by the instruments spoke to the hearts and minds of many.
Area schools began sending students to his house each year to experience the keyboards. Young and old alike marveled that these wooden boxes, with their varied mechanisms made by the hands of our forebears, were the instruments of composers, performers, and amateurs creating the music of their time.
As a musician, these reactions are close to my heart. My first encounters with historic keyboards changed the direction of my life and work.
The answers to my struggles to find the music and meanings within compositions were answered by the touch and sonority of the period instruments, which can teach how to interpret and physically play in a way their modern descendants cannot.
It is terribly exciting to know that this opening of ears, eyes, and minds is being expanded in ways beyond what those of us playing concerts and having a few visitors to our own collections could ever manage. Realistically, however, can visitors benefit from such experiences beyond immediate entertainment?
Though returning to the modern world, they can indeed take something priceless away, especially in how they approach playing, interpreting, and listening to music from earlier times, even on modern pianos.
Relatively simple changes can make a huge difference, such as using far less or more pedal, understanding appropriate volume levels, what the timbre of a Viennese piano in the high treble implies for the music, how the different timbres across the keyboard create a multi-voiced choral or orchestral effect instead of the homogeneous timbre favored by modern instruments.
A new appreciation, for example, may be found for a Clementi sonatina that may sound trite on modern piano, but dances on an early square piano. January saw an exciting preview with a large audience enjoying Dennis James playing his glass armonica along with Michael Tsalka on an 18th-century Broadwood piano in honor of the th birthday of Benjamin Franklin, inventor of the mechanical glass armonica.
The Carolina Music Museum will doubtless be a destination location for many similar gatherings. The museum building once housed the Coca-Cola Bottling Company.
Fortunately, initial plans to utilize a historic mansion fell through, as the current location could not be better. This physical and psychological proximity is a major advantage, attracting locals and tourists as well as presenting opportunities for outdoor events and shared programs.
Can Jane Austen and Shakespeare evenings, bluegrass on the green, and other events be far behind? The building itself is a restored piece of history, the last remaining section of the Coca-Cola Bottling Company that occupied Heritage Green.
Rounding the bend from the entry foyer and gift shop area, the visitor enters a well-lit open space ringed by the beautiful instruments.

The results are delightful, although I found myself occasionally skipping ahead. Atwill is best known as the author of Caesar’s Messiah (subtitle: “The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus,” Roman meaning the Roman imperial family yeah).
