Victrola and Lemonade Party

Help us wish a very happy 100th birthday to “Victor the Eight,” our tabletop Victrola! Manufactured from 1911 until it’s discontinuation in 1924, this non-electric tabletop model featured a 10 in. turntable, two spring motor, and lid. Join us for lemonade and birthday cake while we crank up some acoustic 78s while we celebrate Victor’s centenary in the Wilson Music Library from 3-5 pm on Tuesday, March 28. While you’re here, check out exhibits featuring other sound recording formats (including wax cylinders and wire recordings), recording and playback equipment, and sound recordings from the Blair Performance Archive (BPA).
