More supporters of UCI Recordings are coming together to make this campaign a phenomenal success!
We have extended our campaign. With 29 days left, we are now more hopeful than ever that we will achieve our goal of $21,347. We are so incredibly appreciative of recently received donations from our faculty, alumni, and supportive community members. Many thanks to Linda Schwalm, Julia Lupton, Michael Buchmeier, Charles Wright, Carol Greenwald, Margaret Murata, Lauren Valantine, Sherrylene Santos, Phyllis Gilmore, Robert Huberty, Catherine Hastings, Nicole Grimes, and Robert Heylmun. We are now able to digitize a total of 270 tapes. Among these are original works and orchestral performances conducted by beloved music faculty and composer, Dr. Bernard Gilmore, whose wife, Mrs. Phyllis Gilmore, has contributed in his memory (both pictured below).
Dr. Gilmore taught at the University of California, Irvine from 1982-2006. Many of his works are located in the UCI Special Collections and Archives. Through https://calisphere.org/institution/221/collections/, the world will soon be able to hear his original performance recordings.
As always, please share this link https://zotfunder.give.uci.edu/project/6397 with anyone who you think might be interested to #GiveBackToUCIRecordings. Your donation qualifies as a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible charitable contribution.
