The Classical Concert Committee meets at Char’s Landing to form a board and begin planning for Oct.membership and upcoming concerts for the Alberni Valley Classical Concert Series.

Classical concerts in the works for Alberni

Memberships for the new series will be available at the Rollin Art Centre, Char’s Landing or from individual members of the committee.

The Alberni Valley Classical Concert Committee was formed at a meeting on Sept. 11 at Char’s Landing.

Twenty-three music enthusiasts attended a planning meeting at which a committee of six, consisting of Claudette Sjerven, Gerry Roe, David Cox, Colleen Goodrich and Hugh Grist, agreed to plan a membership campaign in October under the chairmanship of Michael Kozlow.

Guest speaker at the organizational meeting was George Zukerman, O.C., O.B.C., who outlined the financially secure “organized audience” plan. “There can be no failure, only various levels of success,” Zukerman said.

The new committee plans to conduct a membership campaign during the month of October with the first concert planned for November of this year, and the second and third concerts tentatively scheduled for February and April 2017.

Concerts will be planned to take place at Char’s Landing, which has maximum capacity of 150, however the committee is proposing to sell only 100 memberships this year.

“It’s a perfect hall for acoustics and capacity, and we anticipate a quick sell-out,” said chair Michael Kozlow. “There will be no individual concert tickets sold.”

Membership has been established at $100 for the season.

Artists under consideration for the first season include Musica intimo, Lafayette Quartet, Bergmann Duo, Janelle and Friends and Touch of Brass.

Final decision on the programm will be decided by the local committee with Zukerman’s assistance, based on the available funds from the membership drive.

Memberships for the new series will be available at the Rollin Art Centre, Char’s Landing box office or from individual members of the committee.

Further information on the proposed concert series can be obtained by calling David Cox at 250-723-8362.
