About Northdale Music Press Limited
Northdale Concert Band, a community ensemble founded in 1967 in

interest in having challenging Canadian music published and performednot
just in Canada but around the worldand, as a result of thoughtful

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

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.
