Musical Instrument Museum or MIM began with a vision to create a global musical instrument museum. MIM’s founder Bob Ulrich wanted to develop a new kind of museum that would focus on the kind of instruments played every day by people worldwide instead of featuring only historic, primarily Western classical instruments.
MIM has a collection of more than 8,000 instruments from more than 200 world countries.

From the start, the Museum’s goal has been to deliver a musical experience that is enriching, inspiring, interesting and fun. One such musical experience is happening on Friday, April 30 at 7:00 p.m. Seven-time Grammy nominee Will Clipman will take us on an unforgettable musical journey with his performance on a global palette of indigenous instrument which will be interwoven with spellbinding tales, all punctuated by his original mask art, which he uses to transform into the narrator spirits of his original stories.
A three-time Native American Music Award Winner, Will Clipman has recorded over 60 albums. He is also the house percussionist for Canyon Records and arts educator who has conducted hundreds of workshops, lecture-demonstrations, master classes, and artist-in-residencies.
His service as an arts educator has been honored with the Arizona Commission on the Arts Decade of Distinguished Service Award and three Arizona Governor’s Arts Award Nominations.
As the motto of MIM says, music is indeed the language of the soul!
