Hemet Concert Association was founded in 1972, and over the ensuing decades, has brought concerts by some of the world’s finest musicians to Hemet, enriching the cultural climate of our Valley.
Since 2003, we have expanded our concert series to five concerts each season — three classical, one jazz/pop and one folk/world. Our concert season is available for the very reasonable subscription price of $70. You can't even go to the movies for that, these days.
So, get your culture on: join our audience — which ranges from children to retirees — and help us carry on the tradition of bringing artists and audiences together in Hemet!
