The Carolina Music Museum in Heritage Green changed its name to the Sigal Music Museum on July 1. The name change comes after the museum received an endowment and 600 historic keyboards, woodwinds and other instruments from the Marlowe Sigal Collection of Boston.
“Marlowe Sigal’s name was well known throughout the museum and organology community, and we will have this magnificent collection in Greenville, a gift to the entire Southeast and the first of its kind in this geographic area,” said Thomas Strange, artistic director and chief curator of the museum.
The museum currently features a 200-piece ethnomusicological instrument collection, which contains instruments used by different cultures, from Asheville collector Edwin Frank. In addition, the museum will continue to provide concerts featuring music from classical to mountain music.
