Construction on Gladstone
September 18, 2013

A quick note to our local customers: Gladstone Ave. is presently under construction from Metcalfe to Elgin. This may interfere with your travels to The Leading Note! This is the first stage in the complete rebuilding of the infrastructure underneath Gladstone.

Presently, Elgin is not impeded in any way so traffic our our street continues. If you require parking, we recommend Frank St.

The Leading Note is pleased to announce that we now carry the Triplet Light Music Stand. This innovative Canadian design makes it much easier for musicians to read their pages in dimly lit concert halls. The stand has been used by the Chamber Players of Canada and many other renowned artists.
