The collection was inspiring, but it was also virtually uncataloged. She began research to see if the Met was unusual and discovered that very few opera houses have systems in place to catalog their holdings. “Tanisha moved into action,” says Robinson.
Soon hired to work part-time at the Met, Mitchell began organizing these precious works. Since then, she’s cataloged roughly 170 pieces of sheet music and songbooks, more than 200 manuscripts (scores and parts), and about 1,000 rare piano-vocal scores and full scores.
