Come to the 2nd Floor of the State Library to find out why we make a fuss of our music collections. Thousands of Western Australian musicians and music lovers have been members of this library for over 40 years. Many of the State’s sons and daughters have gone on to illustrious musical careers, either here or internationally. Rhapsody: a serenade to the music library features a few of their stories and memories of using the music collections during their formative years. Find out why David Helfgott used to love coming to the library, and how composer Lindsay Vickery used to use the old card catalogue as a sort of mini gamelan orchestra. They have all helped put the state on the map, and we are proud of their achievements.
