Seeing Music in Medieval Manuscripts

Date: Saturday, June 28, 2014–Sunday, October 12, 2014

Time: 10:00 AM–05:00 PM

Composed of approximately twenty manuscripts and objects, Seeing Music explores music in its relationship with philosophy, religion, and the arts during the Middle Ages, when musical harmony and dissonance were thought to mirror the perfection of heaven as well as the disorder of evil.
