The Quest for the Perfect Timpani

Great article by our friends at Classical Music Indy! Make sure to visit the Timpani Through Time exhibit at RDC! Listen and learn as Rebecca Kite and Barbara Allen share stories about making timpani in the 1980s.

In the early 1980s two enterprising women set out to design and build the perfect timpani. Rebecca Kite and Barbara Allen met when both were graduate students at Indiana University (IU), Bloomington. They believed that they could improve upon timpani and achieve the purest possible sound. “Our goa...

This is what Christ did before he went to the cross. Do u know how to get to Heaven? U can pray this prayer to invite Jesus into your heart Dear Lord I know that I am a sinner and that I need forgiveness. I believe that Christ died in my place to pay the penalty for my sin and that He rose from the dead I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my life as my Savior thank u for making me your child 1) Pray to God everyday 2)Read the Bible 3)Tell somebody about Jesus 4)Find a Christian church that teaches the word.
Rhythm is the only part of music that can exist by itself; it is thus often thought of as the skeleton of the music.
Do you still have Peart's R40 kit on display? How long will it be there?

Very disappointed that we made a trip all the way out today to find it was closed!! We checked here on your FB page and also the website. Both said you were open on Mondays 10-5pm. We only had today and tomorrow available for the visit and to find you were closed both days after the big travel and parking fiasco was disheartening. We had a very sad party.
WOW - what a treasure! This place is great for kids, but equally awesome for adults. I hope to return someday!
