School of Music Performance Collection
James Madison University School of Music Performance Collection is a growing set of audio and video recordings that document most performances affiliated with JMU's School of Music from 1956 to the present. The collection consists primarily of reel-to-reel tapes, u-matic video tapes, VHS videotapes, cassette tapes, digital audio tapes (DATs), and compact discs. Tapes are assigned a call number according to their performance date and are stored in a climate-controlled facility within the Music Library.
Access to original recordings is limited. The recordings may be listened to within the Music Library.
