Music Score Give-away

The Crouch Fine Arts Library has been doing some spring cleaning (actually, longer than that), and we have hundreds of music scores to give away.  Many of them are in poor condition, but some are in fair, good, or very good condition.

To make it easier on everyone, we are dividing them into three groups and three days:

Keyboard – Friday, April 29
Instrumental – Monday, May 2
Vocal – Tuesday, May 3

We know that “musician” and “morning person” usually don’t go together, so the give-away will start at 12:00 noon each day.  Nothing can be pre-selected or held for later pick-up.

It’s good to share.  So, on day 1 for each group, we’ll ask everyone to limit themselves to 5 items.  If anything is left after the first day, then you can take as many as you want.

Happy picking!

Folkways Recordings

Music students, we’ve got most of the Folkways recordings that were highlighted in yesterday’s lecture by Daniel Sheehy, director of the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.  Online access is provided through Smithsonian Global Sound, which provides many different ways to browse or search the collection.  In addition, the Crouch Fine Arts Library has almost 300 CDs available for check-out, as well as LP vinyl records going back to the 1950s.  Use these great collections of recordings to expand your musical horizons!

IMG_1243_500WThere was even some foot-stomping action last Friday as the Morpheme Saxophone Quartet performed in the noontime Musical Moments series.  They gave an amazing performance for a very appreciative audience.

Musical Moments in the Libraries

Last Wednesday, we were treated to a performance of a Brahms quintet by string students from the School of Music.  This was the first of an occasional series of short performances at noon.  Come tomorrow, Tuesday, for the next installment–there just might be Christmas music!
