A new exhibit is now on display at the University of Houston Music Library.
The exhibit features the work of jazz artist Bob Dorough (1923 – 2018), one of the creators of Schoolhouse Rock! Materials on display comprise photographs, books, sheet music, CDs, and Schoolhouse Rock! artwork. The items were generously loaned for the exhibit by Dorough’s daughter, Aralee Dorough, affiliate artist in flute at the University of Houston Moores School of Music and principal flutist with the Houston Symphony Orchestra.
The exhibit, which will run through the fall semester, was curated by Alaina Diehl, a recent UH graduate with a Doctor of Musical Arts degree and adjunct music faculty member. “Aralee Dorough was my flute professor for three years of study at the University of Houston,” Diehl said. “Her father, Bob Dorough, passed away this April, and I thought that this exhibit would be a wonderful tribute to him, an important American composer and musician, and a great way to introduce library patrons to his life and works.”
Visitors can view the exhibit at the Music Library, located on the second floor of the Moores School of Music.
