Annual Alumni Assembly Tours Collection
On Thursday, November 10th the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments hosted two tours for the annual assembly of the Yale Alumni Association. This year’s gathering focused on the arts, stressing the importance of the professional schools of art, drama, architecture, and music as integral parts of Yale’s creative environment –an environment which distinguishes it from other major universities.
The Collection’s curators led the guests through the museum’s three galleries, where discussions ranged from descriptions of treasured objects, to the Collection’s inter-disciplinary collaborations with different departments within the university. Some visitors had strong personal ties to the Collection as they reminisced on classes and tours of the past, while others found themselves in the museum for the first time.
