The history of music was the focus of Saturday’s Allen County Historical Society’s annual meeting.

Dr. Jeff Anderson, music instructor at Allen Community College, explained the chalumeau, forerunner to the clarinet, which has significantly more keys.

The chalumeau had only lower notes until changes were made to eventually include the range of notes of the clarinet.
