Special Announcement:

Due to unforeseen circumstances we regretfully announce that Carmen Dragon Music Library will be temporarily suspending the receipt and shipment of music rental orders as of October 5, 2022. This decision is not made lightly as we understand how this may impact those of you in the middle of concert programming, but unfortunately it is a necessary step. We wish this could be otherwise.

Our intention is that the library will reopen for orders in the near future, but at least not until sometime into 2023. Updates regarding our reopening will appear on our website. Other departments in our library will remain open during this time, such as Accounts Payable and Music Returns.

We appreciate all of our current and future clients and their love of Maestro Dragon's marvelous arrangements. We are grateful to be part of such a wonderful musical community for almost four decades, and, we look forward to working with all of you again.

Our email will be monitored periodically but a reply is not guaranteed.

Thank you for your understanding.

With kind regards,
Carmen Dragon Music Library
