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 each season. The purpose is to present live performances promoting Canadian professional musicians.

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 three concerts prior to making a firm commitment to the performers. Tickets are not sold for individual concerts, but are transferable.

Following a very successful, sold-out first season in the intimate venue of Char's Landing, we moved to a larger venue for the 2017-2018 season: the Arrowsmith Baptist Church. The church has exceptional acoustics and provides a very comfortable environment for concerts. Since the church holds a larger audience, we were able to sell a larger number of subscriptions for the second season and can continue to set a higher goal for subscriptions sales, which gives greater flexibility in selecting performers, and may enable the addition of a fourth concert at no additional cost to subscribers.

In our first two years, we were fortunate to have more than ten local businesses sponsor each concert season. We greatly appreciate their support.
