Music Library

The SABC Music Library came into existence in the 1930s as a supporting library for the SABC Orchestra which eventually became known as the National Symphony Orchestra. Over the years, the SABC has significantly invested in the library, purchasing instruments of the best quality and a huge repertoire of printed music. The library currently houses one of the biggest collections of printed music in the whole of Africa including approximately 24 000 titles of orchestral music.
