Notre Dame Collegiate recommends renting instruments through Long & McQuade. Long & McQuade held an instrument rental night in June, and will not be holding another one in September. Therefore, if you have not rented your student's flute, oboe, clarinet, alto or tenor saxophone, trumpet or trombone, you will need to arrange for that rental through Long & McQuade. Their contact information is as below:
Phone: (403) 244-5555 (ask for the Band Department)

For students renting larger instruments, such as baritones, tubas, basses, percussion and electronic instruments, you can rent your instrument through Notre Dame Collegiate.
For students renting a secondary instrument for use in stage band, you may also rent your instrument through Notre Dame Collegiate.
There is no instrument rental night in September, so if you desire to rent an instrument through Notre Dame Collegiate, you will need to contact Mr. Windsor directly to make arrangements. Please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
