Choral Newsletter September 2019

September 9, 2019

Dear choral friends,

September has arrived, which means back to school and, best of all, back to choir rehearsals! At The Leading Note, we celebrate “Bach to School” this month and, during this hectic season, we aspire to this quote by the master himself:

    “I was obliged to be industrious. Whoever is equally industrious will succeed equally well.” – J. S. Bach

We know how industrious choir directors are, especially at this time of year. We wish you a very successful first rehearsal and entire season! Remember that The Leading Note is here to support you along the way. Did you forget to order a key title for the upcoming term? Reach out to us and you’ll be amazed at how quickly we can get it out the door to you. We even offer rush ordering services (for an extra fee), if you are really in a jam.

This month we feature our “Bach To School” sale plus contemporary Canadian choral selections available through The Leading Note. Read below to find out!

Top 10 – Michael Zaugg and Pro Coro Canada

The Leading Note is proud to partner with Pro Coro Canada’s Michael Zaugg to make available a selection of contemporary Canadian titles that the Edmonton choir has premiered over the past few years. See the next generation of Canadian choral talent in Michael’s Top 10 list! (actually 13!). This music is quite challenging so we’ve provided sample pages and audio to help you make ordering decisions. This music is sold in PDF format.

Many of our choral customers have been discovering the beautiful work of award-winning Canadian composer Laura Hawley. Laura recently relocated to Edmonton but she spent her formative years in Ottawa and even worked with us at The Leading Note while completing her studies. We’re very proud of everything she has accomplished as a composer, choir director, musician, and teacher! Read our most recent blog featuring Laura and her work!
