Prime Pianists & Mighty Museums

The right spark of nostalgia will shock and persuade your soul to ignite if you let it.

On this day

Birth of an institution

On this day in 1846, the US Congress passed an act establishing the Smithsonian Institute. The largest museum network - including the Air & Space Museum in Washington DC among others - in the world was interestingly named after a Brit, not an American.

Then and now

Blast from the past

The legend of sasquatch

When Glenn Gould played piano it became about so much more than music. The Canadian classical pianist couldn't help but sing along and move with the groove. While not everyone loved his eccentricities, his talent was undeniable.
