Enchantment of the Glass Armonica

Velaslavasay Panorama

1122 West 24th Street, Los Angeles, 90007

8:00pm

The Velaslavasay Panorama hosts an elaborate illustrated lecture on the history of the Glass Armonica and its use in hypnosis treatments by Franz Mesmer and Phantasmagoria shows. The lecture, lead by Professor Allison de Fren of Occidental College, will be followed by a short performance on the Glass Armonica by the virtuoso Lynn Drye. In addition, a limited-space workshop will be held in the afternoon of Saturday, August 29th, for participants who are interested in an introductory lesson on the instrument.

The illustrated lecture and performance will be followed by a casual reception in the gardens of the Velaslavasay Panorama where guests may interact with Professor de Fren and Lynn Drye, the Armonicist. Lynn Drye is one of the few remaining glass concert artists in the world today. Ms. Drye will be performing classical pieces from the 19th century, though she also writes her own variations and has released three albums of Glass Armonica music featuring the glass xylophone, glass harp and musical bowls. During the performance run, limited edition armonica-inspired candles can be purchased in the Velaslavasay Panorama's gift shop.
