Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The mateirals in this collection span from 1949 to 1992. Most of the materials are music manuscripts, both scores and parts. Many of the manuscripts have unusual paginations, a result of re-using old manuscript paper for new compositions. Thus, in some instances, there would be two compositions interleaved in the same manuscript.
Frank Ahrold, composer, pianist, and teacher, was born in Long Beach, California on December 12, 1931, and died in San Francisco on April 15, 1989. He was a graduate of U.C.L.A. (1953) where his principal teachers in composition were John Vincent and Lukas Foss. Following a year of post-graduate work (1955-56), Ahrold became active in the musical life of Long Beach as a conductor of the Long Beach Civic Chorus, musical director of the Camerata dei Musici, and associate conductor of the Long Beach Civic Light Opera.
