Hartt School phonograph records

Identifier: ARCH138

Scope and Contents

The Hartt School phonograph records consists of phonograph recordings which feature Hartt School students, faculty, and alumni as performers, conductors, and/or composers in recordings from 1938-1986. The collection was initially started by Moshe Paranov, and has been added to over the years. Recordings include Hartt ensembles, albums featuring Hartt faculty and alumni, as well as radio, festival, and other live recorded performances. The live recorded events oftentimes feature Moshe Paranov as the conductor and are frequently for non-Hartt School ensembles. Some recordings in the collection were accompanied with materials such as programs, newspaper clippings, correspondence, performer information, and other ephemera.
