International Clarinet Association Research Center

 Collection 0018-SCPA

The International Clarinet Association (ICA) was founded to "support projects that will benefit clarinet performance; provide opportunities for the exchange of ideas, materials, and information among its members; foster the composition, publication, recording, and distribution of music for the clarinet; and encourages and promotes the performance and teaching of a wide variety of repertoire for the clarinet." To help foster this mission, ICA formed The International Clarinet Association Research Center which contains approximately 1,700 clarinet recordings, the Jerry Pierce and Daniel Bonade Papers, the Ierardi Collection, and a score collection of over 6000 titles. Borrowing of the scores is restricted to members of the ICA and students, faculty, and staff of the University of Maryland.
