The Orchestra Library's primary responsibility is to obtain (through purchase or rental), prepare, and distribute music for the CIM orchestral program. This includes orchestra programs, the regular concert series, conducting student recitals and classes such as the conducting major's Lab Orchestra, the required beginning conducting class and the woodwind/brass repertoire class.
In addition, students can request individual parts for study and auditions. The CIM Orchestra Library does not lend music to outside groups or individuals.
