Music Publishers Association Exhibit

The Music Library is proud to announce the arrival of prizewinning music from the Music Publishers Association. Each year, the MPA's Paul Revere Awards for Graphic Excellence honor the year's best published sheet music and books about music. This exhibit travels around the country, and has already been featured at Old Dominion University. For two weeks only, October 10 to October 31, 2011, select first prize recipients will be on display in the upstairs exhibit case.

The Paul Revere Awards honor outstanding achievement in cover design, book design, publications for electronic distribution, and notesetting. There are further subdivisions of these categories, with awards for specific types of cover design (e.g. featuring graphic elements or featuring photography) and notesetting, featuring different instruments or orchestrations. So check out our exhibit upstairs to see diverse prizewinning music from John Corigliano, Richard Danielpour, Pablo Casals, and Children of Bodom. You can check out the complete list of winners here:
