Performing Arts Council – Classical Music Series

The PAC’s Classical Music Series presents three concerts per year on the first Sunday of the month in Riderwood’s chapel.  Concerts are in November, February, and April.

This series consists largely of chamber music featuring both soloists and small groups.  Doors open at 7 PM.  Concerts start at 7:30 PM and last about one hour.  

Season Tickets

Season tickets will be on sale in all clubhouse lobbies from 4:30 PM until 6 PM on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, and Wednesday, September 27, 2023.  Season tickets are $25, which is a $5 discount from purchasing individual concert tickets.

If you miss the in-person season ticket sales, you can buy them at our first concert for the same low price. See the schedule below.

Individual Tickets

Individual tickets are not sold in advance.  You can buy them at the door if any seats remain after season tickets are sold.  Individual tickets are $10 each.

How to Pay

Cash or checks are accepted for both season tickets and individual concert tickets.  We do not take credit or debit cards.  Please make checks payable to Performing Arts Council.
