    Name a Music Collection

    Name a Collection of Music in honor of a loved one or a special mentor. Bagaduce Music has been fortunate over the years to have the support of musicians and families or loved ones of those musicians for whom a particular collection of music holds meaning.  There are many opportunities remaining to ‘adopt’ a particular collection with a financial gift. Learn more about current opportunities.

    Music Donations

    As of 2024, Bagaduce Music is working on a catalog conversion project that will take years to complete.  This prevents us from accepting all music donations for the foreseeable future.  This includes donations of choral/choir collections, player piano scrolls, piano music, popular music, hymnals, and old/vintage vocal scores.  Please contact your area schools, churches, community ensembles, historical societies, or local music stores find a home for your donation.  We thank you for your understanding.

    Volunteer Your Time

    There are many fun and valuable contributions made daily by our small army of dedicated volunteers from filing and organizing music to preparing music for loan, to answering availability inquiries about particular music and much more.  Learn about our Volunteer Opportunities.
