MUS. Music and the Arts

 Collecting Area
Identifier:  MUS
Queens College alumni and faculty have strong records of achievement in the creative fields. After Queens College’s founding in 1937 the music program (now the Aaron Copland School of Music) quickly became one of the most prestigious in the country, while the Kupferberg Center for the Arts and Godwin-Ternbach Museum provide world-class arts opportunities to the residents of Queens. Special Collections and Archives holds manuscripts of several musicians, composers, cultural critics, and literary figures, and looks to expand holdings in this area. SCA is also interested in documenting the role of music and the arts in the Queens community.
