A new variation on an old party trick: filling several wine glasses to different heights makes a "glass harp", so submerging one empty glass in a basin of water is an "inverted glass harp". It's not the prettiest sounding instrument, but with enough practice, you could at least amuse your dinner guests.

Special thanks to Brian Rosenberg, co-discoverer of the inverted glass harp, and thanks to Alexa Miller for comments/critiques and my dad for the ukulele!

As with any short video for a general audience, simplifications have to be made. To learn more details, check out the Wikipedia articles on virtual mass (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Added_mass) and resonance (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resonance).
