When: 12:00 pm on Friday, October 9
Where: 2255 NQ
Light refreshments will be provided.
Barbara Haws, the New York Philharmonic’s Archivist/Historian since 1984, has lectured extensively about the Orchestra’s past and curated major exhibitions at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts (1992), London Barbican (2000), and Cologne Philharmonie (1998). In the fall of 2003 she mounted the largest multimedia exhibition on the Philharmonic’s history, which opened at the UBS Art Gallery and relocated to the Grand Promenade and Tiers of Avery Fisher Hall. She led the effort to digitize 1.3 million pages of archival material, funded by the Leon Levy Foundation and available online at archives.nyphil.org.
We invite you to join us in an Archives Blitz for the Leo Sarkisian Archive on Saturday, October 3rd.
The Task: Students who participate in the Archive Blitz will work in teams under the general direction of Associate Professor Paul Conway and the specific direction of one MSI student who is already familiar with the nature of the materials. The Blitz will involve creating archival series from the boxes, inspecting the contents of each box to confirm that the box relates to the appropriate series, rearranging materials as appropriate, labeling the boxes, and creating the raw material that will go into the finding aid.
We will be having a Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, September 15 from 5:30-6:30 pm! Location to be determined.
Come learn about our chapter, what we do, how to get involved, and eat pizza! We hope to see you there!
