The site is hosted by the Eastman School of Music but the Board of the Orchestra Musician Forum includes David Stull, dean of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. For more information, checkout the press release at Musical America (another great source of information for professional musicians!).

Mudd's Criminal Past Exposed!

Twenty five years ago, on the night of April 23, 1981, while awaiting interrogation for suspicious activities, a man who subsequently indentified himself as James R. Shinn tried unsuccessfully to dispose of incriminating evidence within the confines of the Main Library...

You can take the self-guided tour of the world-renowned Shinn Room, starting at the display in the lobby of the Main Library between 9am and 4pm on Friday April 21st and Monday April 24th.

Relive the drama!
