Grove Art and Music Online Updates

We are pleased to announce updates to both the Grove Art and Music Online databases.

With this update there is new content added to Grove Music Online from the forthcoming second edition of the Grove Dictionary of American Music (AmeriGrove), edited by Charles Hiroshi Garrett. The first edition (1986) is widely considered the definitive reference work on the subject, and while some of the topics in this update appeared in the first edition, all are completely new to Grove Music Online and have b

een updated for the project. Highlights include articles on the Centennial Exhibition, Fadette Ladies' Orchestra of Boston, Wagnerism, Preservation, and Society for Music Theory.

This AmeriGrove update continues to increase Grove’s coverage in 19th-century music, and these 200 new entries focus primarily on 19th-century concert music. You will also find a number of new entries on scholars, librarians, and organ music. There are now over 750 articles from AmeriGrove in Grove Music Online.
