Basement music tours


The Central City Library basement, traditionally hidden from the public eye, with more secrets than the Da Vinci Code, is open for investigation this NZ Music Month. Rumoured to be home to over 600,000 items, a significant corner of the basement holds more sheet music, scores, orchestral and choral sets than you can comprehend. Covering all genres of music, the collection also contains song anthologies, vocal scores and librettos for opera and musicals miniature and full scores, instrumental tutors, a strong New Zealand music collection, prints and manuscripts.

And this is the tip of iceberg.

If you’re a treasure-hunter, an archive-dreamer, or simply into underground music, make a booking today. Book online at the first floor enquiries in the Central City Library, or phone us on 307 7780.
