About

Music Programs Collection, Dickinson Music Library of Vassar College

One of the oldest continuous collections of concert programs in an academic institution, the Music Programs Collection documents Vassar College Department of Music events from 1866 to the present.  Student and faculty concerts, interdepartmental collaborations, and guest appearances by music scholars, composers, critics, and performers of jazz, world music, and classical music are represented here.  This collection offers glimpses of the history of college level music pedagogy, topics of interest to the institution, contemporary taste in repertoire, and concert programming practice.

 

In this initial phase of the project, programs from the periods March 1866-June 1887 and October 1953-May 1969 are covered.  Rich data details each performer’s status while at Vassar and identifies world premiers, concert series, and the use of special instruments.

 

We are hopeful that in the future all of the programs in the 100 binders which make up the Music Program Collection will be added.  For further information, please contact the Music Library: http://musiclibrary.vassar.edu/ (opens new window).
