The Library of Congress is proud to offer free digital programming from its collections for the enjoyment of audiences that are not able to attend our live events in Washington, D.C. The Music Division works with colleagues throughout the Library to ensure that past events in the Concerts from the Library of Congress series, educational programs, talks, interviews, and select special events are captured and posted online (when permissions permit). These videos add to the Library’s always-growing performing arts collections, while demonstrating how the physical and digital treasures in the collections relate to current performance practice.  

This is the first in a new series of posts on “In the Muse” that will highlight recent video releases available for streaming. You may also subscribe to receive email alerts about new videos here. Explore the archive of 830+ event videos at and on the Library’s YouTube channel. Archival audio recordings of concert series events are available through the Recorded Sound Reference Center.
