The land on which we gather is the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

  • Müzewest strongly feels that culture should be affordable to a variety of socioeconomic groups. Our ticket prices reflect our desire that people from any financial background should be able to attend an extremely high quality classical music concert.

  • Classical music has the power to change people’s lives and shape our communities. Given the influence that this art form can have, it is imperative that financial reasons NOT restrict people from accessing this amazing music.

  • Each artist that performs at a Müzewest recital gives a concert in a local public school.  This concert is at no charge to the school!

  • Each artist that performs at a Müzewest recital gives a Masterclass for students of their particular instrument

  • Müzewest firmly believes that music education helps young people develop socially, emotionally, and intellectually.  Our priority is that young people and individuals studying music (in all capacities) have access to wonderful performances.

Our Vision:
