Baylor School of Music Performance Recordings and Programs

This collection holds more than 9,000 audio recordings of School of Music performances, including faculty recitals, student recitals, and ensemble concerts.  The archive is mostly complete from 1980 to approximately one year ago, and also includes a small number of recordings from earlier years. 

Among the musical works on the recordings are many that have seldom been heard; some of these have never been commercially recorded, and a smaller number were premiered here at Baylor.  To identify recordings of interest or to find a performance date:

  • Search OneSearch for recordings that have been fully cataloged.

  • Recordings that have not been cataloged for OneSearch can be identified by searching the performance programs in the Baylor Digital Collections.  Please note that, for some performances, recordings do not exist.  This is the case with almost all recitals given by guest artists. 
Performances that were originally recorded on tape or CD are in the process of being digitally preserved.
If you would like to request a digital copy of a recording, please read the School of Music policy first to ensure you are eligible. The Libraries do not own the copyright on these recordings. We partner with the School of Music to approve appropriate access.
