Over the years, EMV has collected a valuable collection of unique historical instruments. This collection benefits many musicians and established cultural institutions in our region, and allows EMV to produce concerts of seldom-heard repertoire that requires specialized instruments. The most recent acquisitions to this collection are a splendid set of Baroque timpani that received their debut at our gala performance of Handel’s “Israel in Egypt” on August 7th, 2013.
