Vintage Sheet Music – Fundraiser for OrKidstra

April 4, 2018

Vintage Sheet Music at The Leading Note

The Leading Note is grateful for the generous donation of Vintage Sheet Music from Margaret 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.

Founded by the owners of The Leading Note, Gary McMillen and Tina Fedeski, OrKidstra is a social development program for children aged 5 to 18 living in under-served areas of Ottawa, Canada. OrKidstra’s mission is to empower kids and build community through the universal language of music. They carry out this mission by providing children from low-income families with free group and individual music lessons and the chance to learn important life skills like respect, compassion, teamwork, and responsibility through playing and singing together.

We hope that you find something to appeal to you!
