Guide to the Dept. of Music Records, 1922-Ongoing

Abstract

The Department of Aesthetics, Art & Music was established at Duke University in 1942. In 1960, the Department of Music was recognized as an independent department and Dr. Allen H. Bone was appointed the first Chair. The department moved into the Mary Duke Biddle Music Building when it was completed in the 1970's.

The bulk of the Dept. of Music records consist of publicity documents including programs, press releases, and calendars, for various Dept. of Music events. There are also documents regarding the renovation of the facilities, clippings, posters and general records for the department.

Historical Note

The Department of Aesthetics, Art & Music was established at Duke University in 1942. In 1960, the Department of Music was recognized as an independent department and Dr. Allen H. Bone was appointed the first Chair. The Mary Duke Biddle Music Building, completed in the 1970s, became the Department of Music's permanent home.

Today, the Department of Music thrives as a presence that is felt throughout campus. With nine performing ensembles (Chamber Music, Chorale, Collegium Musicum, Djembe, New Music, Jazz, Opera Workshop, Symphony Orchestra and Wind Symphony) and hundreds of students enrolled in classes, the Department of Music pursues its mission to enrich the educational experience of all Duke students.
