Cornish College of the Arts announced that it has received a donation of an extensive collection of baroque chamber music. The gift, courtesy of Joy Lewis and her late husband Urban J. Lewis, III, of La Jolla, California consists of over 1,000 published and unpublished works and encompasses the entire baroque era.
The collection, to be known as the Lewis Music Library, will help to support the continued growth of Cornish’s new Artist Diploma in Early Music performance program. That program, under the direction of internationally renowned early music specialist Stephen Stubbs, was inaugurated last year with the intent of developing the next generation of baroque instrumental and vocal performers with an emphasis on baroque opera. Enrollment in the program is highly selective and limited to twelve students per year.
