Dance Orchestra Sheet Music Collection

Consisting of close to 300 titles, this collection of dance orchestra music parts likely reflects what might have been heard on KDKA radio in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania before live orchestras were replaced with recorded music. Established in 1920, KDKA describes itself as the first commercial radio station in the United States.

Titles published in Pittsburgh and/or composed by a known Pittsburgh composer are marked with an asterisk (*).

The following is a complete list of the pieces contained in the collection. To access the Dance Orchestra Sheet Music Collection, please come to the Music Department at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.
