An exhibit showcasing the Juan Orrego-Salas Legacy Collection in celebration of his 100th birthday


The Latin American Music Center (LAMC) celebrates the life and music of its founding director, Juan Orrego-Salas, on his 100th birthday, with an exhibit that highlights his impact as a composer, educator, scholar, and advocate of Latin American music. The exhibit includes materials from the Juan Orrego-Salas Legacy Collection, donated by the composer in 2011 as part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Center.

The Collection consists of Orrego-Salas’s musical works and ephemera such as letters, photographs, concert programs, and writings by and about Orrego-Salas. It includes sketches, manuscript scores, and published scores by the composer. A variety of program notes, concert programs, reviews, and articles, as well as Orrego-Salas’s scrapbooks comprise part of the Collection. Other items include personal and professional correspondence to and from Orrego-Salas, scholarly writings by and about Orrego-Salas, papers and compositions written by his students, as well as photographs and artwork, all of which provide insight into the life and music of the composer. The Collection will be available for research at the Lilly Library at Indiana University.

The exhibit is on display at the William and Gayle Cook Music Library from January 18-February 26, 2019. It is complemented by an online exhibit, which can be found at:


This project is sponsored by the LAMC, Lilly Library, William and Gayle Cook Music Library, and the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University.
