Our sessions are designed to help you select fine literature for all types of programming.

In addition to our new Concert Band selections, our new Jazz and Choir selections will also be at our Events, as will the following repertoire:

  • ABA Syllabus titles;
  • Library Classics;
  • Indigenous Music;
  • Under-Represented/Colourful Composers;
  • Female Composers;
  • Favourites;
  • Christmas/Holiday;
  • Light/Pop;
  • Sale; and
  • the latest Reference material for Music Educators.

We are grateful to have new music, and while we proceed through the listening process, we are happy to see a bigger crop of releases this year as publishers regain their footing.

While you are finding your music, we will treat you with supper and beverages.

There are few times for directors to meet amongst colleagues these days; this aims to bring you together and also to fill your soul.

Where two years prior we went online, and last year we were in-person with restrictions, this year we look forward to getting back to our unique and fun sessions that directors have come to know and love. Enjoy an enriching afternoon of new music, and collegiality.

Further, 2022-23 will mark 30 years! These Events will kick that celebration off!

In honour of our 30th Anniversary, we’re making it a significant year. Your presence will make it a distinguished event. Spread the word, bring a director friend or two.

Reminder – June Sale orders may be picked up on these dates.

Have a great summer, and we look forward to seeing you at a Session.

Thank you!
