Resources

Record

The Great Hall is equipped with a recording studio, based around a vintage 16-channel Yamaha mixing board. The hall can be used to record a solo artist or large ensemble, with musicians spaced throughout the room. A collection of different microphones capture the sounds, and the recordings are made and mixed on a Macintosh computer running Logic. Additionally, there is an Otari 4-track 1/2 inch tape machine that can be used for tracking and mixing.

Research

The Sanctuary is proud to house the American Traditional Music Library, which began in 2015 when our neighbors Brooks and Carolyn Otis generously donated their collection. The Library contains histories, biographies, sheet music, CD's, & LP's, telling the story of jazz, blues, folk, country, and everything in between. There are listening stations in the Great Hall beside the bookshelves, and in the Dining Room downstairs, where recordings can be enjoyed and studied.

Musicians interested in researching American musical history, learning tunes, or hearing source material will find a wealth of valuable information in this collection.
