 Harvesting the Music Tree: Sustainable African Blackwood

 

Woodwind musical instruments are made from African Blackwood which grows only in East Africa. Brenda won a 2008 Global Connections grant to visit Tanzania where she played oboe for thousands of rural villagers and became the first musician in history to witness every detail from searching for and harvesting the tree, to the making of a top of the line woodwind musical instrument. With slides, video and a hands on exhibit of the wood, including museum quality Makonde sculptures, she describes her experiences and discusses how destitute Africans are being raised out of poverty via the preservation and conservation of this commercially threatened tree.  www.brendaschumanpost.com/sustainableafricanblackwood.htm

  Oboes of the World


What does the sound of the oboe mean to humanity? With a display of 30 ethnic oboes, Brenda plays recordings and shows slides revealing the presence of this beloved instrument in almost every culture on Earth. www.brendaschumanpost.com/oboesoftheworld.htm  http://oboesoftheworld.com/perf1oboe.htm
