Historic Music at the Museum

The Depreciation Lands Museum offers live music of the 18th century at many of the events throughout the year. Music serves to enhance and further evoke the aura of stepping back in time. A variety of local musicians are eagerly welcomed to our little village of Talley Cavey through out the year. From time to time you may find one of these groups, or other musicians visiting our area.

The DLM sponsors the Pittsburgh Historical Music Society, our orchestra in-residence, which rehearses and performs at the Depreciation Lands Museum. The group also performs at the Woodville Plantation and other historical venues. The Society is dedicated to performing music of the 18th and early 19th centuries, in beautiful historic dress, using period appropriate instruments. The group endeavors to bring a vibrant historical music experience to life, transporting audiences into the past. Membership is open to all interested adults and older teens.

The Pittsburgh Shape Note singers, lead by Penny Anderson, offer etherial 4-part vocal harmonies. Early 19th century Hymn books, such as the "Sacred Harp" used notes in four different shapes to indicate the pitch to be sung. Anyone interested in singing is invited to join the group.
