Amy already gave you a heads up or two, but I’m going to tell you again about our big music sale this weekend.
- Saturday, October 23, 2010 — 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
- Sunday, October 24, 2010 — 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Main Library
2nd floor (in the International Poetry Room, down the hall from the Music Dept.)
What will be there:
Particularly strong this year is the selection of music scores for woodwinds (flute, bassoon, recorder, etc.) plus a lot of piano/vocal scores of opera and operetta. There are also some folk music collections. For students and aficionados, there are a number of orchestral study scores.
The selection includes music history, music instruction and biographies of musicians.
This section is dominated by videocassettes of operas that will sell for 50 cents each. There is also some music instruction on VHS and DVD.
The CDs are from donations so they’re in fine shape, not scratched up, and not covered in stickers and labels. And a couple years ago, it was almost all classical, but this year, there is a lot of rock, pop, reggae, electronica, Latin and more. They’ll be $1.00 each.
Almost everything will be less than $2.00.
We pride ourselves in having a massive collection of circulating and reference material in our Music Department. That will remain as such. The sale is a chance for you to cheaply pick up some stuff to add to your home library that you never have to return.
See you this weekend!
p.s. Then we hope to see you soon after for the second meeting of this season’s Pittsburgh Symphony Book Club on Tuesday, October 26 at 6:00 p.m.
