Music Division Celebrates Its 100th Anniversary with Special Performance Series

Coolidge Auditorium Reopens

The Music Division of the Library of Congress, to mark its 100th year as the nation's foremost musical archives, announces a gala season of concerts, films, lectures and exhibits that highlight the extraordinary range of the division's collections in classical music, jazz, American musical theater and dance.

Many of the events will be presented in the historic, newly renovated Coolidge Auditorium in the Thomas Jefferson Building. Considered one of the world's finest acoustic environments, the intimate, 500-seat concert hall has been home to many of the legendary musical figures of the century.

"We are very happy to be reopening the Coolidge Auditorium in our centennial year," said Jon Newsom, Music Division Chief. "The official date is October 30, 1997, the birthday of the founder of the Library's concert series, Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge. Our public programs will illuminate our distinguished history, and look ahead to what we intend will be an equally distinguished future. Our 1997-98 season demonstrates a renewed commitment to preserving and sharing the Library's performing arts treasures, to presenting superb chamber music, and to commissioning new works that reflect a broad vision of the performing arts in America."

All Library of Congress public programs are presented free of charge to the public. Tickets for Music Division events in the 1997-98 season may be obtained through TicketMaster (see below).

Pre-concert lecture: "Quantz and His Versuch," by Edward Reilly, Professor, Vassar College

NOTE: Beginning this season, patrons can order tickets for Music Division events from TicketMaster. We believe that this service will eliminate long pre-concert lines and offer a more efficient and convenient method for everyone. For information regarding tickets, call TicketMaster at the telephone numbers listed below.

In contrast to the previous system of distributing tickets on the evening of the performance, with seating on a first-come, first-served basis, the new ticket distribution service will eliminate the various inconveniences that patrons experienced, particularly the long pre-concert lines. It will also allow the Library of Congress to comply with current security regulations for all federal buildings.

Patrons can order advance tickets for Library of Congress Music Division events directly from TicketMaster. Seats for each concert will be available on a regularly scheduled basis, approximately six weeks before each concert, and patrons may request specific seats. Exception: Tickets will not be required for the Library of Congress Jazz Film Series and the Nathan Kroll Film Series, presented in the Library's Mary Pickford Theater. The TicketMaster ticketing system is designed to sell tickets on the "best available seat" basis. Therefore, the sooner patrons order tickets, the better the seat and the wider the selection. In the past, due to the popularity of the Library's concert series, there were not enough tickets for everyone waiting in line for many of the concerts. Under the new system, when a concert becomes "Sold Out," that information will be immediately available when patrons call TicketMaster.

As always, there will be no charge for events in the Concerts from the Library of Congress Series. However, there will be a nominal charge for the ticketing services provided for this series by TicketMaster.

Tickets may be obtained at all TicketMaster outlets, including Hecht's department stores, Tower Records and Kemp Mill Music, for a $2 service charge per ticket. For a complete list of outlets, call TicketMaster at (202) 432-7328, or visit TicketMaster Washington/Baltimore on the World Wide Web at: http://www.ticketmaster.com (external link)
