Mus. 321 c.1
A collection of handbills and programmes for performances given at the Wigmore Hall, London, in 2006, being the sixth of seven boxes comprising the Susi Dell collection. This box also contains a souvenir programme for a Royal Opera House, Covent Garden production of Verdi, Macbeth, conducted by Yakov Kreizberg.

The Wigmore Hall programmes related principally to the Song Recital Series/Festival of Song. There is also material for the London Pianoforte Series (1 programme), BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concerts (3 handbills) and for a Lecture-Recital by András Schiff (1 handbill).

All documents include programme notes, with biographical notes and photographs. The programmes also include words for the vocal pieces and information about the venue.
