Orchestrations

This is a partial list of our holdings. If there's a particular song or piece you're looking for, or hoping would be here, write to us through the Contact page. If we have it and if it's available for rental, we'll be happy to provide it.

We will update these lists as we acquire new material.

Some of these orchestrations are from the collection of The Great American Songbook Foundation, whose mission is to inspire and educate by celebrating the Great American Songbook (popular music, also referred to as "standards," many of which were written for Broadway and Hollywood musicals from the 1920's through the early 1960's). The Foundation will benefit from the rentals of those orchestrations which they have made available. If you would like to know more about the Foundation please go to their website:
