Visiting the Moravian Music Foundation offices in Winston-Salem and Bethlehem and doing your own research is free. We are also able to assist you, free of charge by mail, email, or telephone when providing you with information from our catalogs and finding aids (“is there material on such-and-such topic?” for instance) or when your question can be answered in less than ten minutes.

However, if you need more substantial research to be done and you are unable to visit in person, research requests may be performed by the Moravian Music Foundation staff, within the staff’s available time as determined by the Director.
