We Bring Classical Music to Life!

The Muskoka Concert Association began in 1947 under the sponsorship of the Gravenhurst Rotary Club.

Today the organization runs as a community-based association, directed by a volunteer board. It is one of the longest-running concert associations in Ontario.

The objectives of the Association are three-fold: to enhance the awareness and enjoyment of classical music for all age groups; to provide at a reasonable cost a variety of quality musical performances, accessible to all, in community facilities; and to endeavour to sponsor musical outreach events for students.

Some of Canada's finest artists who have appeared for the MCA include soprano Lois Marshall, bass Jan Rubes, contralto Maureen Forrester, tenor Jon Vickers, guitarist Liona Boyd, the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, pianist Anton Kuerti, and the Aradia Ensemble.

We hope you are staying warm and well in the safety of your home.
