New York Philharmonic Archives Are Now Online

The New York Philharmonic is putting its archives online. While the entire collection is not yet digitized and online, there is a lot of good stuff available now. If you visit the New York Philharmonic archives today you will find images, programs, scores, and business documents. In the near future you will be able to find audio and video recordings in the archives as well as press clippings and concert magazines. You can search the archives by date, by era, or by artifact type.

Applications for Education
The New York Philharmonic archives could be a great resource for teachers and students of music history. When the audio and video elements come online, the archives will become a great resource for teachers of music appreciation too.
