Winchester Academy presents The Physics of Musical Instruments
October 21, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The Physics of Musical Instruments
Art Stevenson, a bluegrass musician and Senior Lecturer in physics and astronomy at UWSP, will be joined by fellow musician Professor Emeritus David Tamres, who taught Physics, including a course he developed on acoustics, at UWSP. Fascinating physical principles of woodwinds and stringed instruments will be discussed and demonstrated. The pennywhistle and the guitar are examples of how musical instruments produce sound, and of how they are tuned and played. Principles of resonance, fundamental frequency, harmonics and tone are demonstrated using the guitar and pennywhistle.
Celebrate the Bach Festival by attending this event.
