About the Hemet Concert Association
Hemet Concert Association was founded in 1972, as a part of the national Community Concerts organization, which has brought top-level classical music performers to small towns all over North America for 80 years. Over the ensuing decades, Hemet has heard concerts by some of the world’s finest musicians, enriching the cultural climate of our Valley. Since 2003, we have been an independent presenter, and have expanded our series to five concerts each season—three classical, one jazz/pop and one folk/world. This diversity seems to suit our audiences, which range from children to retirees.
Our venue is the Crossroads Baptist Church of Hemet, whose Pastor Rick Patterson is very supportive of our mission: to present the very best possible examples of the performing arts we can afford. Our all-volunteer Board of Directors works very hard to ensure that we spend the majority of our funds on artists’ fees, rather than administrative costs. In addition to 260 subscribers, we have the financial support of over 90 patrons, who contribute beyond the cost of tickets.
