Concert Series

For heights and depths no words can reach, music is the soul’s own speech.

MacKay United Church was blessed with wonderful acoustics for music. Over a decade ago, we undertook an ambitious and successful fundraising effort to purchase a high-quality Yamaha C-7 concert piano suitable for our Sanctuary. In the following years, we have become well known for our chamber music concert series and jazz concerts.

This year our chamber music series will offer four concerts from September to April:
