Celebration of the New California ChapterPlease save your Friday evening, March 1, for a special reception and exhibition at the King Library, just three blocks from the Fairmont Hotel. The local arrangements committee is hosting an after-hours reception at the library to celebrate the merger of the two California chapters of MLA. This is a good opportunity to see the massive library, a unique partnership between San José State University and the City of San José. While enjoying fabulous food, view “Beethoven’s Vienna,” an exhibition in the special collections wing that will feature technologies of Beethoven’s time such as a Mälzel metronome, ear trumpet, zograscope, and music engraving tools. Visit the Beethoven Center during the reception to hear the fortepianos and see Beethoven’s quill, original manuscripts, and other treasures (yes, even Beethoven’s hair!).
