Sheet Music Collections
- Dance Orchestra Music Collection
Consisting of close to 300 titles, this collection of dance orchestra music parts likely reflects what might have been heard on KDKA radio in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania before live orchestras were replaced with recorded music.
- Organ Sheet Music Collection
Organ Sheet Music Collection is a supplemental collection of over 1300 individual pieces of sheet music, made richer by numerous gifts from distinguished local organists, including Caspar Koch, the Pittsburgh City Organist from 1904-1954.
- Pittsburgh Sheet Music Collection
The Library holds a unique collection of over 1000 titles of sheet music published in Pittsburgh or nearby since the early 19th century, a number of them highlighting the people and places of Pittsburgh (The Kennywood Park Waltz, The Ohio River Song). Some titles by various Pittsburgh composers, published elsewhere, are also included in this collection.
- Vocal Sheet Music Collection
The Library holds a collection of over 5800 titles of vocal sheet music containing popular songs of different eras. Some of these titles contain little known introductory verses of well known songs.
