Choirs

The Leading Note prides itself on being a specialist in choral music. Our choral customers include university choirs, high school choirs, church choirs and community choirs right across Canada (see below for a list of local choirs in the Ottawa area) and beyond. We offer a quick turn around on your order, competitive pricing and free shipping for orders of $100 or more.

We are pleased to offer a discount to choirs:

  • a 10% discount* on orders that are picked up in the store
  • a 5% discount* on orders that are to be shipped out.

As well, we may be able to offer a higher discount on very large orders (depending on the publishers involved) – please feel free to contact us for a quote on any order.

Our on-line store makes ordering even easier. If you plan to use our on-line store for a choral order, please contact us to set up an account so that you will automatically receive your choir discount.

A few things to note about the on-line shopping process:

  • Free shipping on orders of $100 or more effectively provides you with an additional level of discount on reasonable sized choral orders. Local choirs may choose the option of picking up their order at the store.
  • Regular choral customers may choose to be invoiced with 30-day dating, by selecting the Manual Payment option.
  • Since most publishers have minimum order requirements for choral octavos, we require a minimum order of either 6 or 12 copies for these titles (our shopping cart automatically enforces this). If you have a valid request for fewer copies, please contact us.

Our staff have a wealth of knowledge in the area of choral repertoire. If you don’t find what you’re looking for on our web site, please contact us – if it’s out there, we’ll find it for you!

In general, feel free to contact us at any time for a quote comparing different editions. We are confident that we can provide you with the best combination of cost and service (with no extra shipping and/or brokerage fees usually incurred when ordering from the U.S.).

* This discount applies to titles from most publishers that we deal with. However, we may not be able to offer any discount on titles from certain smaller publishers.
