Written by:  Alison Wetheral

In conjunction with Western Symphony Orchestra's spring performance, the Music Library will be debuting an exhibit featuring selected memorabilia from the Music Library's noted Gustav Mahler- Alfred Rosé Collection.

The Gustav Mahler-Alfred Rosé collection is disputably one of the largest surviving bodies of primary source material relating to the life and times of Gustav Mahler and his brother-in-law, violinist Arnold Rosé. Items from the collection being featured in the exhibit include the only autograph manuscript of Mahler’s earliest songs, a poem Mahler composed, a baton Mahler used, programs, letters, a facsimile score, and the famed Rodin bust.

The original items will only be on display during the Western Symphony Orchestra's performances taking place on Wednesday, April 1st, 2015, and Thursday April 2nd, 2015 in the Paul Davenport Theater in Talbot College at 8:00 p.m. Admission to both concert and exhibit is free! 

Come out for a night of fantastic music and memories!
