Proposals for a Performance Archive Invited

The Board of Directors invites members to consider submitting a proposal for the creation of an archive of performances of classical works. The idea for such an archive was one of the suggestions growing out of a Committee on Research retreat in September, 2009, with input from the Committee on Outreach as well. It was developed into a more detailed concept by a task force chaired by C. W. Marshall; the report of this task force can be found at The task force suggests a number of characteristics that an ideal archive project would have.

The Directors have now asked the task force to evaluate proposals from institutions and individuals interested in being the home of such an archive. If you would like to pursue this opportunity, please see the link given above for details.
