Learning to Perform - New Special Collections Exhibit

mozart.jpgLearning to perform music using the technology and performance conventions of the time when the music was composed requires finding the primary sources from that era to create a historically informed performance. These primary resources include performance directions written by composers; contemporary method books, dictionaries, and instructional texts; first published editions; annotations left in scores by musicians from first performances; ethnomusicological transcriptions; and early accounts of musical performances.

In this exhibit you will learn about instruments like the Chinese qin and the Grand Harmonicon, about musical notation such as figured base and shapenote, and much more. The exhibit will be on view in the North Lobby of Honnold/Mudd through Fall 2017.

For more information, please contact Special Collections: spcoll@cuc.claremont.edu or 909-607-3977.

Summer is a time for piling family, maybe even grandma, friends, and pets into the family car - be it a station wagon or covered wagon - and head off for a great adventure. Let Special Collections's current exhibit help you reminisce about your experiences of this time-honored tradition. The exhibit offers glimpses into travel throughout the western United States. The materials on display reflect various modes of travel in the region taken up by individuals and families during the 19th and 20th centuries. On display are first-hand accounts such as diaries and photographs, and ephemera such as road signs and marketing materials. See how these road trips from the past could lead you to your next great adventure! This exhibit will be on view in the Claremont Colleges Library North Lobby from June 6th to August 4th.
