"Playing in that caliber of an ensemble was incredible. Sitting next to world class players like that challenges you & pushes you to instantly become better. Watching them run rehearsals, interact with each other, exchange musical ideas (even when they didn't all agree), was definitely the most beneficial thing I was a part of at PRISMA. I wish I got to do that every day I was there!"
-Kelley Tracz, Oboe, 2016 PRISMA Student

New for 2017: Assigned Seating at Concerts

PRISMA is pleased to announce a switch to reserved seating for the 2017 festival.  It is our sincere wish to make each concert as enjoyable an experience as possible for all of our patrons.  Reserved seating will cut back on line ups and allow you the freedom to enjoy your time before and during performances.  
Membership Renewal

PRISMA memberships, regardless of the month in which they were purchased, are valid from AGM to AGM.  The end of the   Jan. 11, 2017 AGM signalled the expiration of all 2016 PRISMA memberships.  If you haven't already done so, please renew your membership to be ready for the 2017 festival season.  
April 12th & 13th

Join us for an evening of music on April 12th in Powell River (Max Cameron Theatre) and April 13th in Courtenay (Filberg Centre).  PRISMA Guest Artists Janet Arms (flute and piccolo) and Marc Goldberg (bassoon) are making a special trip to perform at this year's spring receptions. Save the date now and don't miss out!
Stay tuned for more details, coming soon.
