In 1904, all eyes and ears turned to the city of St. Louis, host of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. Music publishers in St. Louis and across the United States printed songs and music in all styles inspired by the fair, its exhibits, and its attendees. Hear the sounds of the fair as preserved by the Gaylord Music Library sheet music collection in this recital sponsored by University Libraries and the Department of Music.

For further information about music at the fair, see the Library’s online exhibit, “Class, Race, and Sheet Music at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition.”
