Today is Uncommon Instruments Awareness Day. Whether you play a crystallophone or a Theremin, a glass armonica or stylophone, an Aeolian harp or a hang, today is your day. Rock out on your euphonium or crank that hurdy-gurdy. It’s all music and if no one really understands the instrument they also may no realize how well you play it. Go to the Imagination Pavilion and play the instruments that you can play just by waving your hands in the air. Trust me, it’s fun.
