The Orchestra Musician Forum (OMF) and its website, Polyphonic.org was funded by a gift of from the Symphony Orchestra Institute (SOI), which was founded in 1994 by Paul R. Judy. The first issue of Harmony, the SOI's periodical, was published in October 1995. Included was an extensive bibliography of the literature about symphony organizations written since 1960, compiled for the SOI by Erin V. Lehman, Ph.D. In an accompanying essay, Symphony Orchestra Organizations: Development of the Literature Since 1960, Erin provided a brief exposition of the primary works in this reference list. In subsequent issues of Harmony, the Institute added many works to this basic bibliography, including the content of Harmony.
To further assist parties interested in research and writing about symphony orchestra organizations, or better understanding them, Polyphonic.org continues to update this bibliography. In addition, we have significantly enhanced the useability of it by adding appropriate key words to each entry, as well as the ability to search the bibliography by author, topics, or key words. In addition, where we have been able to find a web link to the entry, we have provided that link. We hope you will find these enhancements to be timesaving and valuable in your research.
Polyphonic.org welcomes additional suggestions as to how to make this bibliography more useful and informative. Also welcome are suggestions for additions to it.
Polyphonic.org has copyrighted this bibliography, but readers are encouraged to "copy and paste" from the listings to assist in their research.
