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.  Recordings 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.  Recent recordings may be listened to on the Music Library online repository (using your JMU eID and password). All Recordings are eventually cataloged and can be found using the above search box. These must be listened to within the Music Library.
