Weber Days 2017: Voxman and Eble: Iowa City's Music Men

Starting in the 1950s, Himie Voxman and Charlie Eble traveled throughout the United States and Europe, collecting sheet music for arrangement, study, and sale in Iowa City. Katie Buehner, head of the Rita Benton Music Library, examines Voxman's travels, the archives he visited, and his editorial work. Buehner is joined by David Hempel, previous owner of Eble Music Co., and the Voxman 5, a woodwind quintet from the University of Iowa.
