USC acquires Paul Salamunovich Archive
USC Thornton’s department of Choral and Sacred Music, in conjunction with the USC Libraries Special Collections, has been gifted the archives of the late conductor, scholar, and educator, Paul Salamunovich. A long-time conductor and music director of the Los Angeles Master Chorale and an influential voice in choral pedagogy, Salamunovich also taught at Thornton and directed the USC Thornton Chamber Singers.
The Salamunovich archive contains many of the conductor’s scores and papers and will be accessible to Special Collections visitors within the next year. A portion of the archive, along with some items that will be kept by the family, will be digitized and placed in the USC Digital Library, making them available worldwide.
