Introduction

This collaborative project, with Cardiff University as the lead institution, will create an online database of holdings of concert programmes held in libraries, archives and museums in the UK and Ireland, providing access to a vital source of information about musical life from the eighteenth century to the present day.

These largely hidden – and therefore significantly underused – documents will be of enormous interest to performers, musicologists, local, economic, social, cultural and theatre historians and also to music librarians.

The database will be hosted by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council website Cornucopia and will be searchable by concert-giving institutions, concert venues, date, collectors, performers and other fields.
