The one show remaining on the 2017-18 calendar has been changed from June 3 to Sunday, June 10, since the scheduled performer is unavailable due to an injury. Instead, a group of young musicians will present a We Are The Music Makers special.

After a summer hiatus, the nine-show series of monthly concerts for 2018-19 begins with The Golden Age of Piano Oct. 21, featuring May Ling Kwok.
Transcendental Etudes: The Soul of the Study brings Steinway artist Shoko Inoue to town for a performance at the Chemainus United Church on Nov. 18.
A Celebration In Song Dec. 16, also at the Chemainus United Church, will put everyone in the holiday spirit with the Concenti and Cowichan Valley Youth Choirs, directed by Sheila Johnson.
