MUSI 256 - Vassar Music Treasures

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
Vassar’s Skinner Hall of Music houses a valuable collection of historical instruments that represent the tastes and affinities of many generations of collectors, and offer important insights into social history, performance practices, and material culture. In this Intensive course, students work individually and in collaborative teams to combine research with hands-on examination and analysis of the instruments. The data generated will be used to build a new digital collection, Vassar Music Treasures, which will permanently reside in Vassar’s Digital Library as a resource for study and research. Kathryn Libin.

Prerequisite(s): One 100- or 200-level Music course.
