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.

Do you have a few minutes to spare? We need some help with a number of light tasks that take very little time. If you would like to lend a hand, we are looking for Friends of the Muskoka Concert Association to do the following:
  1. Concert Greeter - greet concert goers and ask them to sign up for email blasts about our concerts that include reminders and details about last minute changes.
  2. Flyer Distribution - distribute flyers around town or at the market.
  3. Pre-Concert Set Up - put out posters and flyers on the tables in the Trillium Court prior to each concert.
  1. Donation Jar Attendant - look after the cookie donation jar during concerts.
  2. Concert Photographer - take a handful of photos of the concert including pre & post concert reception.
  3. Refreshment Clean Up - helping the Andersons.
You may have noticed other things that would improve everyone’s theatre experience. Tell us and let us know how you can help. The most important things you can do is come to each concert and tell your friends to come too!
