Detailed Description of the Collection

Series 1: Maryland Handel Festival, 1743-2001 (7.5 linear feet)

The Maryland Handel Festival was formed to present choral, solo, chamber, opera, and orchestral works of George Friderich Handel, which at the time of the festivals founding were rarely performed. A main focus of the festival were Handels dramatic, English oratorios which were performed in the order composed and as Handel first presented them. The festival led to the United States premieres and first run versions of many of Handels neglected masterpieces. This series is arranged by year, each year containing correspondence, conference records, financial records, logistics, ticket information, publicity, reviews, artists, programs, librettos, and music. Recordings from the Maryland Handel Festival can be found in Series 7 of this collection, Audiovisual Materials. Items within each subseries are arranged chronologically, with correspondence and symposium papers arranged alphabetically by sender.

Series 2: University of Maryland Chorus, 1749-2002 (5.0 linear feet)

The University of Maryland Chorus was a primarily non-student ensemble that was originally formed in 1967 for a special performance of Ludwig van Beethovens Ninth Symphony with the National Symphony Orchestra. The chorus went on to gain an international reputation for their performances, and critical acclaim for their recordings. The ensemble was also instrumental in strengthening ties between the University of Maryland and the College Park community. The chorus was disbanded in 2009. This series contains correspondence, financial and logistical documents, publicity, ticket information, programs, memorabilia, and sheet music and a facsimile. Recordings of this ensemble can be found in Series 7 of this collection, Audiovisual Materials. Items in this series are arranged chronologically by concert season. Within each subseries all correspondence is arranged by date.
