Bohemia on Records with Guest Speaker Filip Šír

April 29 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Filip Šír, coordinator for Digitization of Audio Documents at the National Museum (Prague), will talk about his work to track down and preserve early 20th century Czech sound recordings made in the United States. Ed. Jedlička cylinder recordings from the Music Library’s collections will also be exhibited. Filip’s book on this topic, co-authored with collector Gabriel Gossel and published in 2018, talks about a number of important Czech recording artists and producers, including Jedlička and Chicago-based Joseph Jiran.

If you’re interested in archives, historical sound recordings, immigrant cultures, or Czech history, be sure to attend
