Selected recordings of Schillinger House performances, radio spots, and curricular resources from Alma and Lawrence Berk’s personal collection of phonograph records. These discs feature the oldest surviving recordings of Berklee performances—in particular, the 1950 and 1951 “Montage of Modern Music” concerts featuring the pieces Boston Jigsaw and Panorama in Brass; musical “exercises” likely used for teaching; and broadcasts from Tune Tryouts broadcasts, the songwriting contest for amateur composers launched in 1952 by Lawrence Berk.
