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;
  • to sponsor musical outreach events for serious music students wanting to gain experience in public venues
Diane Harrop, President of Muskoka Concert Association
We hope to see you at our next concert.
Feel welcome to introduce yourselves.
And remember to bring a friend!!

The Sultans of String

The Gravenhurst Opera House
As winter crests and the mercury falls, everyone from your taxi driver to the music supervisor at the mall starts running timeless hits like "Jingle Bells" and "Silent Night." But for their Christmas Caravan show and album (which hit Billboard's World Music Charts and the New York Times Hits List), Canada's string wizards Sultans of String celebrate the holiday spirit with an adventurous musical trip around the world, featuring exuberant originals, world-music inspired classics, and seasonal favourites to warm your heart on a cold winter's night.
Joining the Christmas Caravan this year is shimmering guest vocalist Rebecca Campbell.
From fiery fiddle tunes to a Caribbean sleigh ride, this surprising and delightful holiday fiesta heats up when Sultans of String bring their signature sound to well known gems such as Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, a Turkish twist on Greensleeves, Silent Night, as well as a django-jazz inspired Django Christmas, and a Rumba-Flamenca fuelled Jingle Bells.
Christmas Caravan show is also a special awareness raising bash for the UNHCR
As fundraising partners with UNHCR, the band has raised over $10,000 from their community awareness efforts and UNHCR's 'tip boxes'.
"Helping refugees is a cause we care about deeply because more than 67 million refugees worldwide are in desperate need of our support. They have every right to live a safe and dignified life as much as we do", says Queens Diamond Jubilee Medal recipient McKhool. "By supporting this show and partnership with the UNHCR, you are providing life-saving assistance to refugees all over the world."
"Chris McKhool and the boys are fantastic!" Bob Ezrin (Producer, Pink Floyd. Peter Gabriel)
"Perfect, joyful music performed by perfect musicians"

"An amazing worldbeat Christmas where even the tried and true is taken to such new and amazing lengths. Very hot stuff clearly made to chase the cold winter away."
Midwest Record, USA
"Canadian band Sultans of String keeps imaginative imperatives in overdrive for the entirety of Christmas Caravan, a generous pitch for global unity through the music of Christmas, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah. These five musicians have jubilantly recharged the classics with arrangements that demand attention. ★★★★

"This one totally undoes any "bah, humbug" a jinglebelled-jaded deejay might feel!"
