The Alberni Classical Concerts Committee was established in September 2016 with the goal of establishing an annual classical concert series in Port Alberni, with at least three concerts in a season that extends from October of one calendar year to May of the next. The purpose is to present live performances promoting Canadian professional musicians. We now have four concerts each season.

In May 2017 the committee registered the Alberni Classical Concerts Society, which is eligible for provincial and municipal grants.

The main source of funding for the concerts is the sale of subscriptions to each series, which are sold in advance of the first concert. A series subscription model provides a guarantee that we will have sufficient funds to hold all scheduled concerts at the beginning of each season. Tickets are not sold for individual concerts, but the subscriptions are transferable.

Concerts are held at the Arrowsmith Baptist Church, which has exceptional acoustics and provides a very comfortable environment. The size of this venue allows us to offer a number of complementary subscriptions and to increase the size of our audiences.

We have been fortunate to have local businesses sponsor each concert season. We greatly appreciate their support.

The society directors are:

We would like to acknowledge, George Zukerman OC and
OBC, who provided assistance with the formation of the
concert series and booked the artists for our first
three seasons.
