Over 1400 octavo titles and 100 masterwork titles are now ready for immediate rental.  Our goal is to add 200-250 new titles each month from the nearly 5000 titles we have received and are working to process.  Our team of volunteers is working hard to process the generous donations received by the Jane Sullivan Choral Resource Library each month.
Want to visit the Jane Sullivan Choral Resource Library in person?  Please contact us at 913-403-9223 or Mail@FestivalSingers.org to make an appointment.


RESEARCH

The Jane Sullivan Choral Resource Library is a place where conductors, choral administrators and students conduct research into major works and short-form choral masterworks.  In addition to thousands of titles in quantity the Sullivan Choral Library has thousands more reference copies and thousands of linked recordings.

A reading room will soon be established at the JSCRL for research into choral methodologies, music history, conducting techniques and composer biographies.  The reading room will be fully available to conductors, students and researchers on-site at the Jane Sullivan Choral Resource Library.

UNDERPRIVILEGED ORGANIZATIONS & POPULATIONS

Do you work with an organization that serves underprivileged populations?  Is your organization seeking to grow and reach out, but has a limited budget for music purchase?  One of the missions of the Jane Sullivan Choral Resource Library is to provide music for such organizations at reduced rental cost or free of charge.  Once the JSCRL is open worthy organizations will be able to apply for support for special projects.

PRESERVATION

The Jane Sullivan Choral Resource Library has been collecting rare and long out-of-print works from across the country as we seek to preserve great choral music.  Many quality editions are no longer available through traditional sources, but are preserved for research and performance here at the JSCRL.  Our staff is carefully reviewing each music score to ensure that it is protected and preserved for many generations to come.
