Music box collector shares treasures with Harmony Museum
On the right note
HARMONY — Music boxes just hit the right note for Al Zamba.
His fascination with music boxes dates back to his childhood.
“When I was young I heard a music box. I love stringed instruments like the harp,” he said. “To me, the sound you get from a music box is unique. The sound you get from a music box comes from the wood.”
That youthful encounter with a music box set off a 40-year and counting occupation of collecting the musical instruments for the retired dentist from Evans City.
He can’t say how many he has.
“I never counted them. There’s a lot,” Zamba said.
