Music Friday at the Lancaster Museum of Art
By Matt Early on April 10, 2011

First off, thank you to everyone who attended the opening for “Pennsylvania Seen: Southeast Landscapes” at the Lancaster Museum of Art. I think we all will agree that the museum’s curator, Stanley Grand, did a fabulous job pulling together an excellent cast of artists and their work. Secondly, thanks to all who put their time and effort into bringing the “Art of the Party” together and making it a huge success. If you missed either of these events, you still have a chance to visit the exhibit from now until May 22nd.

Residential Media Systems sponsorship has provided us an unique opportunity to share another art form during the exhibit, music. On April 15th, RMS will be sponsoring a “Music Friday” reception from 5-8 PM. “Music Friday” is a Lancaster citywide event that occurs every third Friday of the month at a multitude of venues throughout the city. It  promotes the musical renaissance within Lancaster and makes it a hot spot for the abundance of great musicians and bands that live and work here.

Our participation in this event will provide an evening focused on the emotional connection we make between our love of music and nature. We will be showcasing our finest audio systems within several of the galleries and procuring a symbiotic experience of music and it’s connection with the landscape theme. As an added bonus, we will be providing the musical selections via the timeless format of the vinyl record. A turntable from Thorens will emanate sounds, from the grooves, that will soothe and calm visitors as they stroll through the museum.

The equipment chosen will be as unique as the music. In the main first floor gallery we’ll be showcasing a Thorens TD309 turntable. Its unique design has caught the eyes and ears of the European press and was awarded “European Turntable of the Year 2010-2011”. The main electronics on display will be from Bel Canto Design. Hailing from Minneapolis MN, these artfully designed components use Class D amplification and are at the forefront of high performance digital technology. Flanking the electronics will be a pair of the elite Joseph Audio Pulsar speakers. Released for the first time with absolutely rave reviews at the Consumer Electronics show this past January, The Pulsars create a new benchmark in sound quality that needs to be experienced first hand to be believed.

Utilizing the wireless technology of Sonos, we will be broadcasting the music from the first floor gallery up to the second floor. In this gallery, we will be highlighting the timeless components of NAD. This company has been a staple in the audio world for over 40 years and is well known for offering high performance sound quality on a budget. Speakers from Monitor Audio will complement the electronics bringing an unique British sound to this system.

Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be available to help along the soothing sounds! Please help spread the word to others so that the masses can share in this exciting experience. Also remember that you will be supporting the arts in your community!
