From Williamsburg, VA, Mr. Shostak presents a multimedia concert that introduces audiences to amazing glass instruments. They range from Benjamin Franklin’s glass armonica to brand new instruments created for Mr. Shostak by glass artists from around the world. It is an ever-changing showcase of glass music, art, history and science. Mr. Shostak is a nationally acclaimed touring artist whose music has been featured on Voice of America, The Weather Channel, The Discovery Channel, NPR’s “All Things Considered” and at The Arena Stage in Washington D.C.
In 1991, he became involved in the revival of the rare and beautiful glass armonica, invented by Benjamin Franklin in 1761. Today, there are only eight glass armonica players in the world. Mr. Shostak is credited with bringing the lost art of playing this historic instrument back to Williamsburg. He has incorporated new and antique glass instruments into his show that include the glass violin and crystal handbells.
Tickets for the January 20th concert will be available at the door or by contacting the museum.
