Depreciation Lands Museum


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 welcomed to our little village of Talley Cavey through out the year.

Friendship Day features concerts by a Pittsburgh based group which sings in the 18th century style, using music printed as "Shape Note". We will also be treated to a concert by the orchestra of the Pittsburgh Historical Music Society.
Ice Cream Social will feature the Wayward Companions and their historical music.

The DLM sponsors the Pittsburgh Historical Music Society, 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 costume, using period appropriate instruments. Membership is open to all interested adults and older teens.

For information about scheduling a musical performance for your group, having your group perform at DLM, please e-mail the Museum or call 412-486-0563 and leave a message.
