About the Music Centre
The Westminster Music Centre is a community focused non-profit venue. [Insert new mission statement?]
In the interest of keeping this beautiful venue alive, a group of motivated citizens formed the “Westminster Music Association,” run by a volunteer board of directors, in the fall of 2016 and re-organized the Music Centre as a 501c3 non-profit organization. In 2017 we hired a part-time director to run operations and officially started holding events again in March 2017.

BJ and his family moved to Westminster in 2011 to establish Callywood Farms, a sustainable family farm, to pursue their dream of living off the land and growing their own food. They raise pigs, chickens, and garden while also raising 2 children. Every summer they host the Summer Solstice Farm & Music Festival which combines their loves of live music and farm life.
