We invite all members to join us at the first Performing Arts Section virtual business meeting. The global pandemic undoubtedly has had devastating consequences for the entertainment industry and performing arts archivists have responded to both the distinct challenges and opportunities lockdown has presented. Please join your colleagues to catch up on how you have been coping during these unprecedented times. We also will try to capture some of the Chicago flavor of our original meeting plans. Jenai Cutcher will give a presentation on her work with the Chicago Dance History Project. Frank Villella, who had agreed to host a tour of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Archives will instead share some highlights of the collection online.


This is a free event! RSVP required for Zoom security.
