Get a listen to the world's oldest playable harpsichord, a circa 1500s instrument from Naples, now restored and on display at the National Music Museum in Vermilion, S.D. Hear a performance by Catalina Vicens:
The Historical Keyboard Society of North America just met at the University of South Dakota. The gathering featured a harpsichord used in the mid-1500s by the elites of Italy. A 20-track album of music performed on the instrument is expected in January.

Congratulations to Edward Kelsey Moore, whose novel, 'The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat', has been named to the New York Libraries' Summer Reading list, an official list of 15 books recommended for adult readers.
Enjoy this essay that Edward Kelsey Moore wrote for Classical MPR, 'The C Major Suite and Me'.
Professional cellist and best-selling author Edward Kelsey Moore shares two stories about why Bach's Cello Suite No. 3 in C Major is his favorite of the six Bach suites. Together, the two stories tell a lot about Moore's experience as a cellist and, in particular, his experience as a black cellist.

John Philip Sousa is the March King, but that's not the only type of music he wrote. On this week's Learning to Listen, hear some of Sousa's other works, plus you'll hear the lyrics — yes, the lyrics — to Sousa's famous march, The Stars and Stripes forever.
John Philip Sousa is known as The March King for writing 136 wildly popular marches around the turn of the 20th century. He composed successful works for the stage, too, in the form of 70 songs and 15 operettas. Sousa's 'other music' is the focus of this week's Learning to Listen.
