The Museum of Making Music (MoMM) celebrates its latest exhibition “LOW: The Power & Beauty of Bass” with an opening party.

The community is invited to check out the exhibit before it opens to the general public on Sunday, Nov. 8, 2015.

The evening starts with a wine and cheese reception, followed by a conversation with exhibition consultants and curators. It concludes with a live performance by Michael Kennedy and band.

“LOW: The Power & Beauty of Bass” explores the world of bass – the sounds that fall below 262 Hertz on the frequency spectrum, as well as the low register instruments that make them. Bass sounds are considered critical in music making with its importance often compared to an engine or compass within music.

This highly interactive and participatory exhibition introduces several aspects of the low register—bass—experience. With the overarching theme focusing on low sounds, the exhibition can also be experienced through unique elements that appeal to the senses of sight and touch.

The event is free for museum and National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) members and two guests, or $15 for non-members.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending. Check local COVID-19 restrictions and updates.
