Many Broadway performers have launched their musical theater careers in Pittsburgh, often at local universities. When school is in session, Music Department staff delight in assisting the many musical theater students who visit us.
The Library’s musicals collection encompasses printed music, CDs (original Broadway cast and movie soundtrack versions), and DVDs, from the earliest Broadway shows to the most recent. Students visit the department for the breadth and depth of the musical score collection, looking for audition pieces, resources for homework assignments, and to explore their own interests.
Here are the most recent acquisitions.
