Hello from the Board of Directors!
We are looking forward to sharing our passion for music with you as we plan for the upcoming new season. As always, PMC strives to provide local musicians with opportunities to perform a unique complement of chamber music in Vancouver. Our plan is to grow PMC’s audience based on the solid foundation that has already been built.
As the newly elected Board Chair, I look forward to attending my first of many concerts. I warmly welcome you to our community and look forward to seeing you at future events.
