About Northdale Music Press Limited

Welcome! The Northdale Concert Band, a community ensemble founded in 1967 in Toronto, Canada, established a publishing company—Northdale Music Press Limited—in 1992, to issue new, unpublished, and out-of-print music by leading Canadian composers.

The project began with the Ontario Arts Council’s funding of six newly commissioned works for the Northdale Concert Band in 1985. On July 1, 1986, to mark the International Year of Canadian Music, the band performed the world premiere of the compositions at the Canada and Ontario Pavilions at Expo 86 in Vancouver, British Columbia. But until Northdale Music Press was established the pieces remained unpublished and unavailable to other ensembles. Using several of the commissioned works to form the core of the exceptional music on offer, Northdale continued to seek out new pieces to add to its catalogue.

There is now an increasing interest in having challenging Canadian music published and performed—not just in Canada but around the world—and, as a result of thoughtful acquisitions and attention to detail, Northdale Music Press has become the publisher of choice for many ensembles wanting to increase their libraries’ Canadian content.

With the success of the Canadian band division, Northdale Music Press Limited has expanded to include compositions for other ensembles, and has also established the Northdale International division, featuring never-before-published compositions attributed to W.A. Mozart.

As a result, the Northdale Concert Band, which is made up of dedicated amateur musicians, can be partially supported by proceeds from Northdale Music Press sales. The rest of the revenue goes back into the company so it can continue to provide ensembles around the world with exceptional Canadian music.
