We continue our celebration of Women's History Month with programs from the Library of Congress featuring music made by women. You can now enjoy these concerts, interviews, and lectures as NLS talking books available from the Music Section!
The Library of Congress recently inducted the 1997 film Selena into the National Film Registry. In today's post, learn about the women who were Queens of Tejano music before Selena's all-too-brief reign.
Celebrate Women's History Month by learning about Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, the first woman to receive the Pulitzer Prize for music, and Mana-Zucca, composer, pianist, singer, and one of the most photographed women of the early 20th century.
Start your New Year with new music! Despite the challenges of the past year, the NLS Music Section acquired many new and exciting books and scores for our patrons to use and enjoy. See what's on our "Best of 2020" list in braille, audio, and large print!
Joaquin Rodrigo, one of the greatest Spanish composers of the 20th century, happened to be blind. Learn about how the essence of his artistry is to be found in his vocal music and how he became a poet, philosopher, and historian of Spain through his music.
