In our new exhibition entitled “They Sang and Took the Sword” – Music of World War I, opening August 6th 2018, the Music Library observes the 100th anniversary of the conclusion of World War I, as marked by the signing of the Armistice on November 11, 1918. The exhibition brings together selected materials from the Music Library’s Special Collections and Collection of Historical Sound Recordings pertaining to the war. Several of these feature the work of Yale students, alumni, and faculty.

Our latest exhibition, Black Sound and the Archive, which opens Apr 13th, highlights materials from the Gilmore Music Library’s Special Collections that document the history and significance of African-American sonic practices. In the exhibit we investigate the stories behind artifacts that have never been displayed before.
