Our work

In 2013-2014 we gave over 200 free classes that benefited 50-65 Seniors every week, we supplied them with music and instruments that they were able to keep and we supplied  instruments to care facilities.

 You may know us long standing members of the PG music community and teachers but we do much more than that.

(with permission of the family click for video) one of our Senior care home classes E. is a lovely woman and one of our regular participants she knows all the words and melodies and enjoys singing each week. We ran this program for a year thanks to a Gov. grant, we have applied for further funding. It was a very positive thing for all the varied seniors who took part in our classes. This was not just playing for Seniors, we went way beyond that which is why the program was so powerful.

We offer ensemble classes to adults so they can participate in music, free concerts for children and free concert tickets to those in need.

We we do this without ever running a deficit, our business sponsor Coles Woodwinds picks up all cost overruns.

About us

Classical music Prince George
We present all professional classical music concerts and make recordings using Prince George musicians. All of our players are local professionals which means that all the funding we receive stays in town and helps Prince George have a vibrant musical community that can retain quality musicians and helps us all grow and develop as players.

We have toured the North, produced the first PG Classical CD, produced original school shows, premiered new Canadian music by local composers, given hundreds of music classes for Seniors in care, run an Adult instructional band and more.

None of these things would happen without us. We give residents the opportunity to hear first class performances of classical music that they would normally never get to hear due the extremely large amount of rehearsals needed for these often very demanding works. We program based on artistic merit not on audience appeal. Our concerts are followed by a small but loyal group of classical music connoisseurs.
