Albert Seay was Professor of Music at Colorado College beginning in 1953, and served as Chair of the Music Department from 1967 until his retirement in 1982. His students and colleagues knew him as a great teacher and scholar who was equally dedicated to both undergraduates and his own internationally acclaimed musicological research. Dr. Seay’s numerous contributions to the Seay collection include a variety of musicological resources, a large repertoire of piano four-hands and two-piano music, and a collection of unusual woodwind chamber music.
The dedication of the library in his memory took place in October of 1984.
Our collection includes over 19,000 scores, 2700 books and printed music reference materials, and 11,000 sound/video recordings. You can search for these items in the TIGER Catalog. We are a gateway to many online music resources, including specifically selected Music Article and Information Databases. The campus music collection is divided between Seay Library and Tutt Library. Generally, most scores and sound/video recordings are located in Seay, while most books about music are housed in Tutt Library.
Additionally, we provide access to the Symphony Library, a gift from the The Colorado Springs Symphony Guild. Currently housed in Packard Hall on the Colorado College campus, this large collection of orchestral scores and parts is available for use by orchestral groups residing in El Paso County.
