Pittsburgh Sheet Music Collection

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh holds a unique non-circulating collection of over 1000 titles of sheet music published in or near Pittsburgh since the early 19th century. A number of the songs highlight the people and places of Pittsburgh, for example “The Kennywood Park Waltz” and “The Ohio River Song.” Also included are titles by Pittsburgh composers published elsewhere. Stephen Foster, however, is not well represented, since the Foster Archive is located across the street at the Center for American Music at the University of Pittsburgh.
