Symphonic Music Library
The Arts Commission makes more than 1,100 symphonic scores and musical works from the former Sacramento Symphony available to local and regional performing organizations who have been approved for borrowing privileges. Formerly housed at the Sacramento State University’s Special Collections Library, the Collection will now be housed and circulated from the Arts Commission’s offices at 1030 15th Street, Sacramento. The Collection is currently not in circulation; it is in storage while the new space is being prepared. We anticipate the music will be installed in its new home and available for circulation to those organizations with borrowing privileges by late fall, 2016. The link to the online catalog will be on this page when the music is ready for circulation.
The Sacramento Symphony Orchestra was Sacramento’s premiere symphony for 75 years until it closed its doors in 1996, at which time its musical scores became the property of the City. Access to this valuable collection can save music performing organizations hundreds of dollars a year in music rental costs.
