Content Description

The collection consists of 37 audio cassettes and 1 CD of performances from the North Shore Light Opera Company, ASZ Centennial Symphony, and Northeastern Concert Band, Chamber Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra, Concert Orchestra, and Music at Noon. The collection is unprocessed. The Music at Noon Concert Series at Northeastern University began in 1962 to allow students to perform music informally in front of an audience. It was initiated by Professor Roland Nadeau, then Chairman of the Music Department. In 1964, Professor Tesson took over the program and expanded it to include a wide variety of music. In 1968, Northeastern University formally adopted a budget for the Music at Noon program, thus allowing it to host concerts by professional musicians as well as student bands. There have been three orchestras over the course of Northeastern University's history. The first one began in 1914 and continued to perform until the 1940s. The second orchestra was formed around 1965, under the direction of Professor William Tesson. Although Tesson resigned in 1977, the orchestra continued to play until the 1980s, when it was disbanded. The third orchestra was formed in the 1990s under the leadership of Allen Feinstein. Accessioned 2012 Aug 15. Add to A53? 44/1
