Reserve Free Tickets to a pre-concert panel discussion at 6:15 pm as part of the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA).

String Theory: Exploring the Nature, Craft and Soul of Musical Instruments delves into the material culture of music, exploring the relationship between the things we create and their identity as independent artistic enablers.  Samuel Zygmuntowicz, renowned instrument-maker in New York City, and Will Straw, Professor of Communications in the Department of Art History and Communication Studies at McGill University (Montreal), will examine the constantly-evolving art of violin-making and the unique voice each instrument holds in its design.

Produced in partnership with the Kimmel Center as part of the Philadelphia International festival of the Arts.
