Archives of Pulitzer-Prize winning composer acquired
The Performing Arts Archives recently welcomed the archives of composer and Professor Emeritus Dominick Argento. The collection, totaling 30 boxes, includes letters, score manuscripts, signed photographs, and several rare recordings. The materials illustrate the composer’s impressive creative output as well as his collaborative relationships with other Twin Cities musicians and musical groups, including Philip Brunelle and VocalEssence, Dale Warland and the Dale Warland Singers, the Minnesota Opera, and tenor Vern Sutton. For more information about the collection, please Assistant Curator Kathryn Hujda.
