The High Museum of Art has announced that it will import prized pieces of Italian art next fall in an exhibition of three marble panels that sculptor Luca della Robbia produced for the Florence Cathedral’s cantoria in the 1430s.
Depicting children singing and playing music, the reliefs and other related objects will come to the U.S. for the first time in “Make A Joyful Noise: Renaissance Art and Music from Florence Cathedral.” The exhibit will be on view Oct. 25 to Jan. 11, 2015.
To provide context for these musical history treasures, the High plans an extensive partnership with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The ASO will present a series of organ and choral performances within the exhibit galleries as well as around Atlanta.
