The Orchestra Music Library

General Information

The Southeast Kansas Symphony Orchestra has an extensive music library available for students, faculty, and community musicians. We invite you to make this a resource for your professional development and performance opportunities.

The Music Library, located in room 110 Whitesitt Hall, is organized into three main sections: parts, scores, and miniature scores. Works ranging from symphonies and concerti to chamber pieces are available for research and practice.

The Symphony, Band, and Jazz Libraries share campus extension 4471 (620-235-4471 from off-campus), so if you call us please specify which collection you are interested in.

In addition, we are in the process of cross-referencing our catalogs with the recordings available in the PSU Music Deptartment's Listening Lab.

If you need a title that is not available in the Music Library, it may be available at the Axe Library - check their online catalog for holdings. If it is not owned at Axe, you may be able to obtain it for a short time on Interlibrary Loan. Please contact this department directly for more information.
