The Leading Note Staff: A Brief Introduction

July 27, 2011

Did you know that all of us that work at The Leading Note are active musicians in Ottawa’s thriving classical music community?  Gary and Tina, the shop’s co-owners, are an amateur cellist (currently with the Ottawa Chamber Orchestra) and a professional flautist and teacher, respectively.  Of course, Tina’s main focus these days is her role as Executive Director of The Leading Note Foundation who administer Ottawa’s successful OrKidstra program.  Sheilah, the store’s manager, sings with the Ottawa Choral Society and plays keyboards in psych-rock band The City Above.

When Wendy is not assisting customers in the shop or shipping packages to our out-of-town customers, she is a busy accompanist for both musical theatre and classical vocalists.  In addition, she accompanies classes at the Ottawa School of Speech and Drama and has been involved in several Orpheus musical theatre productions as musical director and pit musician.  Nick and Aura are both pursuing careers as composers and are actively involved with Ottawa New Music Creators.  Nick is also an active chorister with the Ottawa Bach Choir, Songmen Six, and Christ Church Cathedral while Aura works as a freelance flautist and teacher.  We also employ music students throughout the year and have just welcomed pianist Elaine to our team (also a volunteer with OrKidstra).

No matter what level of musician you are, you can always rely on everyone at The Leading Note to be able to assist you and wow you with our musical knowledge!
