Symphony scores, archives will go to Area Research Center
The Green Bay Symphony Orchestra’s extensive library of orchestral music will remain available for community use through an arrangement that will place the collection at the Area Research Center at UW-Green Bay’s Cofrin Library. The library of musical scores was collected over the course of the GBSO’s 100-year history. It was announced previously that the organization will disband as a professional orchestra after this season’s final concert, set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 11, at the Weidner Center. The youth and orchestral music libraries are being purchased by Green Bay physician Herb Coussons, M.D., who has agreed to house the collection at UW-Green Bay. The Area Research Center will also become home to the GBSO’s collection of archival materials including audio recordings of concerts, photos, news clippings, season program books and additional historical items.
