In 2003 The Colorado Springs Symphony Guild, desiring to further promote the musical arts in Colorado Springs and the liberal arts mission of Colorado College, made a gift of the Symphony Library to the College. Currently housed in Packard Hall on the Colorado College campus, this vast collection of over 800 orchestral scores and parts is available for use by orchestral groups residing in El Paso County. The following guidelines pertain to its use:
- The college has the primary right to use the Symphony Library for its educational purposes. However, whenever reasonably practicable, the college shall make the Symphony Library available upon request to other established symphonic organizations of all levels, based in El Paso County.
- The college will not charge for use of the Symphony Library by other Colorado Springs orchestral music users except to the extent necessary to cover reasonable processing and administrative expenses associated with maintaining the music library. The fee is normally $20, only to be exceeded if the cost of borrowing several works requires an undue amount of time.
As of July 2009, we are in the process of incorporating this collection into the library’s online catalog. Therefore, a growing portion of the collection may be found in the catalog. To obtain a CD of the collection’s entire contents, please contact the Seay Library at (719) 389-6560 or email the library.
