We are very pleased to be joining NATS for the Ontario regional auditions being held this year at Wilfred Laurier University. Our catalogue has grown significantly over the last year and we are offering a 20%  discount to the membership of NATS on all our publications for  Voice/ Piano.

While we will be bringing our entire vocal catalog it would be very helpful to know in advance if there are specific titles that teachers and students will want to purchase.  To ensure we are sufficiently stocked with the desired titles we recommend you reserve your order.  Your order will be all filled and separated from the main stock available for purchase.  You may pay for your order either ahead of time on our website or you can pay in cash on Saturday 17th on the day of the event.

Click here for a full list of our Vocal publications and if you wish to place a reservation please send an email with a list of the desired titles.  A confirmation reply email will be sent to you along with an invoice which can be paid when you pick up the order or the payment can be made via Paypal on line.   Reserved orders will receive a 20% discount to the regular retail price and will be spared the usual shipping charges incurred when ordering on-line.

We look forward to seeing you on November 17.
