Message from MAC Executive Director

On Behalf of the Oceanside Community Arts Council and the McMillan Arts Centre (MAC), I would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who has joined in this amazing project.  It has been a pleasure to work with Phil Dwyer and our team to present this two week Jazz Academy this summer.  We look forward to welcoming music students from around the world to learn, celebrate and enjoy our beautiful Oceanside area.  The McMillan Arts Centre, formerly McMillan School, was built in 1913, and we are still providing creative and energetic educational opportunities for all ages.  Special thank yous to the City of Parksville, School District 69, and Inclusion Parksville and our Sponsors, who have given their support and encouragement towards this, the first year of what we hope will be many quality music programming years ahead
