About Us

Almonte in Concert originated in 1980 as the Almonte and District Arts Council, a volunteer, not-for-profit organization offering an interdisciplinary annual programme of music, theatre, dance, and popular entertainment in local homes and schools. Its objective was to increase access to the highest quality in arts and culture for people living in Almonte and environs. This initiative provided impetus for the development of other local groups specializing and dedicated to artistic expression in all forms.

The Almonte and District Arts Council gradually evolved into Almonte in Concert, which has established itself as a premier presenter of chamber music – in the broadest sense. Since then, Almonte in Concert has been dedicated to presenting the widest possible range of distinguished ensembles, soloists, and recitalists in the acoustically superb and intimate setting of the Ron Caron Auditorium in Almonte Old Town Hall.

Almonte in Concert continues to be an entirely volunteer-managed not-for-profit organization renowned for its commitment to musical excellence.
