About this Item


  • Strayhorn: Known & Unknown


  • A number of distinguished panelists contributed to the "Strayhorn: Known & Unknown" symposium. Following David Hajdu's keynote lecture, a group consisting of A. Alyce Claerbaut, Lisa Barg, Marlon Martinez and Robert O'Meally gave presentations about the life and work of Billy Strayhorn, and then answered questions from the audience. Part of the Library's three-day "Salute to Strayhorn," this event helped celebrate the Billy Strayhorn music manuscripts and estate papers collection, now held at the Library of Congress.
