cj_story2_01Jeffrey Kallberg, AM’78, PhD’82, returned to campus to deliver a lecture on “Chopin’s Pencil” during the University of Chicago’s 500th Convocation on October 9, 2009.  Kallberg is currently chair of the music department at the University of Pennsylvania.  Over the course of his career, he has examined nearly every Chopin manuscript in existence.  He took time during his visit to guide sixteen University of Chicago graduate students in music theory and ethnomusicology through the impressive collection of Chopin manuscripts available in the Library’s Special Collections Research Center.  According to Kallberg, “…it is the greatest collection of Chopin first editions outside of Poland.”
