To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, and remember those who perished as well as those who survived, the Music Division of the NYPL’s Library for the Performing Arts has opened All Hands on Deck: Remembering the Titanic (1912-2012). On exhibit are sheet music of songs performed on the ship and written in its honor, as well as photos from from the films “Titanic” (1953) and “A Night to Remember” (1958).
Also, save the date for two Titanic events:
- a concert titled The Titanic (1912-2012): Remembering the Era, the Music and the Musicians at LPA on May 5 at 2:30 p.m. Vocalists Constance Green, Ellen Lang and Irwin Reese will recreate the music performed on board the ships along with other popular songs of the era.
- 100 Years of Titanic with John Batchelor, Charles Pellegrino, and Stephen Spignesi - a panel discussion at Mid-Manhattan Library on Tuesday, May 15 at 6:30pm.
