Music That Brings Us Together

Music on Main has developed an international reputation as one of today’s leading-edge classical and contemporary music programmers. Our goal is to create informal, intimate experiences of great music and great musicians with our audience.

It’s an idea both simple and sophisticated: Why restrict quality music to the concert hall?

About Music on Main

At a Music on Main concert, there’s always great musicians and interesting, engaging music. And there’s always the chance to make new friends, meet the artists, and escape from your to-do list for an hour or two.

Music on Main has produced more than 700 events featuring in excess of 1,800 musicians and 130 world premieres at Heritage Hall on Main Street, the now-closed Cellar Restaurant and Jazz Club in Kitsilano, and venues throughout Metro Vancouver. The music has touched the souls of thousands of listeners, and we’ve helped artists from around the world connect with each other, and with Vancouver audiences.

In 2010 we launched the annual Modulus Festival, which “provides western Canada with one of the finest windows onto the post-classical scene” (Gramophone Magazine). November 2-8, 2017, we co-hosted the ISCM World New Music Days 2017.

Our events take place in Vancouver’s most vibrant neighbourhoods. The Main Street Series happens at Heritage Hall, The Fox Cabaret, and other intimate spaces located in the heart of the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, in East Vancouver.  Other events take place in unexpected and fun venues throughout Metro Vancouver.

At Music on Main, you’re always welcome.
