New Brock collection honours music history in Niagara
Published on April 14 2011
A wealth of Niagara Falls musical history is now preserved in Brock University’s Special Collections and Archives.
Brock has received a donation of archival materials from the Bradley Institute for Music Education, a school that operated in Niagara Falls for more than 70 years before it closed in 2008.
The collection has a wealth of musical history, including correspondence between Niagara Falls native James Harold Bradley (1906-1984) and Isidor Philipp (1863-1958), a world-renowned pianist and professor at the Conservatoire de Paris. Together, they founded the Bradley Institute for Musical Education in Paris. In 1932, they moved the institute to Niagara Falls.
