BOX 1-36 Music, 1811-1924
This series includes music, usually just sets of parts, for small orchestra and band that performed for dances, picnics, graduations, and other events in the Washington, D.C. region and at summer resorts. Chamber music and method books are also present.
There are works in this series with demeaning titles.
BOX 1-19, 25-34, 36 Orchestra, 1872-1913
This subseries contains music for orchestra, primarily small, society orchestral ensembles that performed for dances, picnics, graduations, theatrical productions, and other events in the Washington, D.C., area and at summer resorts such as Cacapon Springs in West Virginia. Just a small portion of the music is arranged for full orchestral forces. The majority of works are represented by printed parts, in many instances augmented by manuscript parts. Full sets of manuscript parts comprise a few works in this subseries. Scores are rare; conducting may have been accomplished with a violin or piano part. The repertoire leans heavily on tunes from operas and operettas in the form of medleys, selections, and "potpourris" from works such as The Red Mill, Carmen, Fatinitza, The Barber of Seville, and The Mikado. Also included are popular songs, folk tunes, drinking songs, concert overtures, marches, waltzes, and other dance music. Of particular interest are the works by Henry Donch: Melo-dramatic Music, the Yacht Club March, and the Saengerbund Carnival March, a work that is represented in other subseries. Works are printed sets of parts unless otherwise noted.
