On April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic tragically sank in the North Atlantic Ocean. In honor of the 100 years which have passed, All Hands on Deck: Remembering the Titanic (1912-2012), curated by LPA's Music Division, exhibits items from our collections to commemorate the Titanic's voyage, its passengers, artists and its memory. Items include sheet music of songs performed on the ship and written in its honor, as well as photos from the films "Titanic" (1953) and "A Night to Remember" (1958).
In conjunction with the exhibit and using materials from The Library for the Performing Arts' collections, LPA will present a concert titled The Titanic (1912-2012): Remembering the Era, the Music and the Musicians, on May 5, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. Join us as vocalists Constance Green, Ellen Lang and Irwin Reese are joined by musicians to recreate the music performed on board the ships and popular songs of the era.
All Hands on Deck: Remembering the Titanic (1912-2012) is on display in the 3rd floor reading room from March 30th through Labor Day.
