Musical Modernist Tour and Instrument Petting Zoo at Way Library

Do you like playing around and experimenting with sound? Then you’ll love this kid-oriented overview to the wild world of 20th- and 21st-century musical modernism hosted by Dr. Ryan Ebright on Saturday, December 7th at 10 am. Come and explore the many different ways that composers and musicians have been making new sounds for the past 75 years. The program will feature live music and a chance to discover some new sounds of your own on various instruments!

Dr. Ebright is the musicologist-in-residence at Way Library for Fall, 2019. He has written for the New York Times and NewMusicBox, and his work appears in various scholarly publications. A dedicated public scholar, Dr. Ebright in the 2018-2019 season appeared with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Toledo Symphony, WGTE Public Media, and Way Public Library. He is working on a book titled Making American Opera after “Einstein,” which centers on the efforts of artists and institutions from the 1980s to the present to redefine what American opera is and how we experience it.

This program is free and open to the public without registration. All ages are welcome. For more information, please visit or call 419-874-3135, extension 119.
