Music In Gotham

Preparation of a searchable database and a 2-volume history of musical life in New York City between 1862 and 1876. (36 months)

Music in Gotham is a database project that documents every musical event that occurred in New York between the 1862-63 and 1875-76 seasons. A customized software program that allows users to find specific events, performers, venues, composers, and works performed during these years serves the project, which will result in two volumes that survey the events of these tumultuous years by genre. Each volume will be accompanied by a CD-ROM containing the data that forms the basis of the narrative. The data will be available as a website. The narrative, which details the richness of the musical events available to Gothamites, will alter the perception of the importance of the arts in New York City in particular and the United States in general.
