I am about to take over a music department that has stagnated for a while and one of my main tasks is to establish some regular ensembles in school. The school has only a very limited library of orchestral stuff (actually, I have only found about 4 sets) and although my budget is high by most standards, it doesn't run to lots of expensive orchestral sets! I am already watching a couple of sets on eBay, and I am also planning to visit my local libraries to see if there is any stock available for loan. I have also contacted some friends at neighbouring schools who may have stuff that we can borrow or buy. It is also my intention to contact the local county music office, but as it is an independent school, I cannot be sure that they will help me. So my question is really to anyone who might know of other sources of ensemble music that I could access? Particularly anyone who works in an independent who might know of other places I could try! thanks in advance!
