Don Wright Faculty of Music Recitals: Student / Faculty / Guest Artist

Hundreds of Western's Faculty of Music Student / Faculty / Guest Artist Recitals were taped between 1965 - to the present. Hundreds of Western’s Faculty of Music student, faculty, and guest artist concerts have been recorded since 1965. Until 1988, or so, recitals were automatically taped for archival purposes. After that time, the process became much more selective, so that one cannot rely upon finding a recording of every Faculty of Music/Don Wright Faculty of Music performance.

Access to this collection is provided by print indexes housed at the end of the Reference Section.

To hear a performance, you must:

  • Make note of the appropriate reference number--from the left-hand column
  • Email Mike Godwin with the request details 
  • Include your name and recording reference number (e.g. 81-148c)
  • Listen to the recording in the Music Library

Dubbing is NOT permitted in the Music Library.

Accessing recordings made after 1997 requires the date, time, and venue of the performance. Bound copies of Faculty of Music/Don Wright Faculty of Music recital programs found at ML42.L66U5 in the Music Library, can provide this information

Certain concerts and recitals are available for purchase as downloads. Contact Mike Godwin for more information.
