About this Blog: In The Muse

The Performing Arts Blog will showcase treasures in the Music Division’s collections of music, theater and dance, from works of the great masters to long forgotten slices of our musical heritage. This blog will also highlight events in the Library’s concert series in the Coolidge Auditorium.
