On Sunday, October 24, at 2:00 pm, The Marc Atkinson Trio with Cameron Wilson will be performing in the theatre at the secondary school. The group, consisting of guitars, violin and bass, serves up a banquet of music that draws from classical, jazz and roots traditions. Tickets will be $25 per adult and $12 for youth (age 18 and under).

Annual General Meeting 2021 and Membership June 21, 2021

We are guardedly optimistic about resuming programming sometime in the next few months and we look forward to being able to welcome you back to a season of wonderful live performances. It will not be possible for us to put together our usual ticket packages for the whole season because plans will only be coming together gradually over the next few months. Please continue to watch your e-mail for announcements as we are able to make them.

In the past, membership of the Society has consisted of season ticket holders. This leaves us in the position of being a society without members at the present time. To solve this problem, we are offering a bargain to anyone who would like to become a member of the society. Fees for a lifetime membership have been set at:

  • $10 for adults
  • $ 5 for seniors
  • $ 5 for youth (under age of 19)
  • $ 20 for a family living in the same household

We hope that some of our longtime supporters will be willing to become lifetime members in order to allow the society to continue as a legal entity. The immediate benefit of membership is the option to vote at our upcoming AGM or to be elected to the board of directors and have direct input to future programming decisions.

The AGM will take place on Monday, June 21, at 4:00 pm, outdoors at 2117 Cedar Street. We hope to see you there. Membership payments can be made by cash or cheque at the AGM. If you cannot attend the AGM, but would still like to be a member, you can drop a cheque in the mailbox beside the garage at 413, 7th Avenue South, mail it to Box 134, Creston, B.C. V0B 1G0, or deliver it to any of the directors of the society. If you prefer to pay by e-transfer, you can make the payment to Leslie Kelner, lesliekelner@gmail.com, with “membership” as the answer to the security question. COVID protocols will be in place at the AGM. Please wear a mask.

If you have been missing quality, professional, live entertainment during the past year, please support us now and in the future.


Message to our Members and Supporters – Spring 2021

We were, regretfully, forced to cancel the last two performances in the spring of 2020 and all the 2020/21 season.  The planned lineup for 20/21 is listed under the 2020/21 tab with links to the various performers.  We will be attempting to rebook as many of these performances as possible. 

We looked into creative ways to organize two smaller events in the Fall of 2020 and to offer some online performances right here through our Homepage. You can find an overview of these events under the tab Covid Activities.

We encourage you revisit our webpage from time to time and to follow us on Facebook where you will find occasional updates and links to performances by artists we have presented in the past or plan to present in the future. You can also ask to be added to our email list where we will continue to send out information about noteworthy online performances. Just send a request to info@crestonconcertsociety.ca or through our Contact-Us page.

We wish good health to all our supporters and we can’t wait till we meet again in person.
