Collection Title
Royal Academy of Music New Music Club (1955-1960)
A collection of one album of programmes and other ephemera from performances by the New Music Club, 1955 to 1960.

The volume is arranged chronologically, with a handwritten, alphabetical listing of composers who are represented in the volume, appearing at the end of the album.

The concerts took place at the Royal Academy of Music, and featured a variety of genres of “new music” including solo instrumental works, chamber music and orchestral works. Concerts often featured a mixture of student works and other twentieth-century items. Occasionally, concerts featured musicians from the Guildhall School of music.
