Music Library Exhibit adds Performance Focus

A new addition to the Music Library’s Online Exhibit launches today, Monday, May 3rd. The new piece of the exhibit focuses on performers, who are often less remembered than composers and theorists in classical music. The exhibit includes a piece from Aaron Copland School of Music faculty Dr. Davis, who has been researching America’s female fiddlers and sharing their stories and art via her Instagram: Fair Lady Fiddlers. It also includes a look at an iconic venue in New York City and its struggle to diversify the stage.

The Music Library Online Exhibit is one part of the Music Library’s ongoing goal to encourage musicians to expand their repertoires.

Queens College Music Library has Launched Online Exhibits

By Michael Deering

The Queens College Music Library is excited to launch their new Online Exhibit, today, March 22, 2021! The exhibit is one part of the Music Library’s goal to broaden repertoire selections. To this end, the exhibit features the musical contributions of composers, performers, and researchers from underrepresented communities. It also features work and stories from the Aaron Copland School of Music community. 

This exhibit will be updated each month with a new focus. For March, we are focusing on a few amazing women in music, including Dr. Samantha Ege who will be livestreaming a lecture in partnership with ACSM on March 24th at 2 PM. It will be aired live and will remain available on Youtube.
