Music Maddie at the MET :D

28 Jun

One of my absolute favorite things to do ov the summer is to take trips into the world’s best city… New York! (Cue Frank Sinatra music 🙂 ) So, seeing as it is summer, my family and I took a day trip into the magical world of concrete, music, bright lights, individuality, fashion, and dreams coming true. First stop of the day?

The Metropolitan Museum of Art!

Now, in this article, part of my inner band geek will submerge, because one exhibit at the museum was all about musical instruments! And let me just say, it was AMAZING. I saw so many cool instruments, like the virginal (it’s like a tiny, portable, foldable, only-like-2-octaves-long piano) and the double chromatic harp! Here’s a picture of one super cool instrument that I never knew existed: the sea dragon!! (sorry for the horrible picture quality)

That was a really great experience for me, to see all of those rare instruments!

Well anyway, enough about instruments. (I deeply apologize for that section if you do not care for instruments. Tee hee 🙂 ) BUT- An extremely exciting exhibit lies ahead! Fashion your seat belts (pun intended) as we trek through the music selection and style preferences of…

PUNK!

There was a HUMONGOUS exhibition centered on the unique style of punk, cleverly titled “PUNK: Chaos to Couture.” It was filled to the brim with plastic models sporting spunky outfits and huge wigs that reminded me a lot of Lady Gaga, actually! I was exposed to a lot of new styles and designs from this. It was so cool! Here are some pictures from the exhibition (I didn’t take them, though).

If you guys have time this summer, you should definitely check out the MET’s exhibits! Not only do they have cool music displays,but they have the most beautiful works of art all throughout the museum. Give it a try… You won’t be disappointed!

Adios for now, amigos!

Musically yours,
