The Frost School of Music is considered one of the most "comprehensive and influential" schools of music in the United States. One of the first two schools established when the University of Miami was founded in 1926, and after nearly 80 years of prestigious history as first the University of Miami Conservatory of Music and then the University of Miami School of Music, the school was renamed in 2003 as the Frost School of Music in honor of a naming gift by Dr. Phillip and Patricia Frost.

As one of the foremost music centers in South Florida, the Frost School of Music hosts a diverse group of community artists in its performance halls. These artists include the Greater Miami Civic Chorale, the Greater Miami Symphonic Band, the Miami Symphony Orchestra, and elementary and middle schools in the greater Miami area. This archive features recordings by these and other guest artists over the past 50 years.
