New BARD Additions: March 2024

Share this post:

Welcome to our latest additions to BARD (Braille Audio Reading Download)! This month, we added more popular Bill Brown “Guitar by Ear” titles including “Moon River” and “Nowhere Man.” The braille collection was enriched by Gounod’s “Ave Maria” for mezzo soprano, violin, piano and organ. We also added the libretto to Alan Jay Lerner’s “My Fair Lady.”

You can download all the listed materials through BARD. To borrow cartridges or embossed scores, please contact the Music Section for more information. You can call us at 1-800-424-8567, ext. 2, or e-mail us at [email protected], and we will be happy to assist you!
