Abstract:

The Contemporary Music Project (CMP) spanned a fourteen-year period from 1959 to 1973. Originally named the The Young Composers Project (YCP), the CMP consisted of three programs: Professionals-in-Residence to Communities, the Teaching of Comprehensive Musicianship, and Complementary Activities. The CMP Archives consists of approximately twenty-five linear feet of documents; scores donated by the young composers, taped performances of CMP compositions, video tapes of the Eastman workshops; the recording "Comprehensive Musicianship Training" and the film "What is Music"; microfilm used by University Microfilms to produce the CMP Library, and the CMP Library itself. The Archives have been housed in the MENC Historical Center at the University of Maryland since the conclusion of the project in June 1973. A browsable listing of scores in the collection can be found at the Contemporary Music Project Archives: Score Library. The processing of this collection supported by the Rose Marie Grentzer Fund.
