I'm sure you've visited the Band Music PDF Library. It is a stellar project funded and run by volunteers. I've used many of their arrangements. Take a look here: http://www.bandmusicpdf.org/
I look forward to hearing you group!

We are looking to expand our repertoire. If anyone knows of vintage arrangements for small orchestra (10-12 pieces) of music from the period 1890 to 1920 that can be acquired (or borrowed) to augment our library, please let me know. A few other organizations have acquired large private collections but they do not share their finds. We are a West Coast-based group while most others of this nature are in the East. Surely there is room for one more organization that wishes to perform this music.
