The Leading Note is grateful for the generous donation of Vintage Sheet Music from Margart Munro, previously owned by Lillian Hoffman. Miss Hoffman, a resident of Farnham, Quebec, was a violinist who graduated from the music program at McGill University in Montreal and was Margaret’s inspiration for learning the violin. Miss Hoffman was a member of the Farnham ensemble (pictured below) and knew the composer Lee Roberts (and some of the sheet music is signed by the composer himself). Miss Hoffman’s collection of nearly 300 vintage titles are currently on sale at The Leading Note and we are pleased to provide all proceeds to Ottawa’s OrKidstra program.
