The SAMRO Foundation is calling on authors, music educators and SAMRO members to donate music books and other music-related literature to be preserved in the SAMRO Music Archive.

With its large reading room, the SAMRO Music Archive offers an excellent environment to study musical works, books and music industry-related articles. 

Earlier this year, SAMRO Board member John Edmond visited the SAMRO Foundation and donated his book Behind the Songs, containing more than 200 of his most popular recorded compositions. 

Author David Chislett also donated two of his writings, One Two One Two: A Step-by-Step Guide to the South African Music Industry and For You or Someone Like You. The SAMRO Music Archive is proud to have these books as part of its archival collection. 

The SAMRO Foundation requests other music creators, writers and members of the public to come forward and donate their books for preservation, and so that they may be shared with fellow SAMRO composer-members. 

For donations and enquiries, please contact the SAMRO Music Archive at (011) 712-8418 (phone), 086 683 5976 (fax) or (email).
