Tape Archive Offers Materials Chronicling Arts Programs

The Office for the Arts at Harvard and Radcliffe’s Tape Archive offers recorded materials featuring a wide spectrum of artists in the fields of theater, film, dance, classical music, jazz, and the visual arts, from its Learning from Performers and Jazz programs.

Highlights of the collection include workshops by jazz legend Sarah Vaughan, and master classes featuring conductor Mstislav Rostropovich (with then-Harvard undergraduate Yo-Yo Ma in attendance). Actors represented include James Earl Jones, Robert Redford, Susan Sarandon, and Jessica Tandy.

The material is available in the Morse Music Collection of the Hilles Library, located in the Radcliffe Quadrangle at 59 Shepherd St., Cambridge. All the material is indexed via computer on Harvard’s HOLLIS system, and may be found by conducting the following search: HOLLIS HU: co LFP//lo=hil. Audio and video stations are available at Hilles Library for listening and viewing. Individuals conducting research who are not affiliated with Harvard must call the Morse Music librarian at (617) 495-8730 for information on accessing the Tape Archive.
