Shropshire Council

Music and drama

The service provides:

  • music scores for voice, piano, strings, percussion, woodwind and brass instruments
  • sets of vocal scores, choral sheet music, scripts, orchestral and chamber works for performance
  • miniature scores for many key chamber and orchestral works
  • recordings of plays, musical performances and instructional material on DVD

Staff will assist with help and advice. You can browse through the collections by visiting Shrewsbury library. Alternatively you can contact music.library@shropshire.gov.uk or ring 01743 255341 and the material you need can then be supplied through a local community library.

If your requirements cannot be satisfied from county stock, it may be possible to obtain the material through the National Inter Library Loan scheme. Charges for this service will apply

The sets can be kept for the duration of the rehearsals and performance, within reason. In order to have the best chance of receiving sets in time for rehearsals a lead in time of two months is needed; please ensure any requests are placed in plenty of time.
