Created to Inspire

Quadra Island Festival of Chamber Music was founded in 2011 by Philip Hansen and Lois Taylor, with its first concerts held at the historic Heriot Bay Inn. In a very short time, the Festival had gained a board of directors who facilitate and fundraise year-round, in order to inspire and uplift you, our audience, through the art of chamber music.
