Tina Fedeski (Flute)
Tina Fedeski studied flute performance at the Guildhall School of Music in London, England. After playing principal flute in the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra, Spain for four seasons she returned to Canada (her place of birth) for a six-month residency on full scholarship at the Banff Centre for the Arts. Tina has lived in Ottawa since 1991 where she freelances and teaches.
In December 1999, in partnership with her husband Gary McMillen, she opened The Leading Note, a classical print music store on Elgin Street. In October 2007 they started The Leading Note Foundation which gives children from low-income communities the opportunity to learn and make music through The OrKidstra and KidSingers programs. The community has enthusiastically embraced the programs and there are now over 85 young, blossoming musicians involved every week!
