As the world sets its eyes and ears on Cincinnati, Ohio for the World Choir Games, the Cincinnati Art Museum gives you another reason to celebrate world music. The Art of Sound: Four Centuries of Musical Instruments will showcase musical instruments from across the globe selected from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection. The Art of Sound will include 115 musical instruments from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s permanent collection. Some of the instruments have not been displayed in more than two decades.  They will be grouped by geographic region/culture: Africa; Native America; Japan; China; Southeast Asia; Western Asia and North Africa; India; and Europe and America.  Visitors will not only be able to see the pieces but also hear and see some of them in use by using an interactive sound and video component especially designed for the exhibition.
