In 2004, the Dale Warland Singers (DWS) chose UC's College-Conservatory of Music as the final home for its score library and archives. The Dale Warland Singers Archive is amongst the largest collection of contemporary choral works in the country.
The DWS collection includes its score library (multiple copies of more than 1100 choral works and arrangements); first edition copies of all 270 works commissioned by the Dale Warland Singers; valuable papers including all organizational and artistic records; and a media library which includes more than 300 audio and video recordings of the ensemble’s performances.
Each document in the Dale Warland Singers Concert Program Archive has been scanned using optical character recognition (OCR) software. Access is available with full text searching within and across all documents and by browsing by title and issue date.
