Our Beginnings: The Canyon Lake Fine Arts Guild traces its beginnings to a clear and crisp January evening in 2001, the Woman’s Club sponsored an event to raise money for a baby grand piano, now in the Holiday Bay Room. The audience, dressed in gowns, jewelry, furs and tuxedos, enjoyed classical music performed by the Inland Valley Symphony. Club President Mavis Schaffner was so inspired by the receptive audience she proposed the formalization of what became The Canyon Lake Fine Arts Guild. The past years have featured a wide range of musical offerings; evolving from classical and opera to Broadway, jazz, swing, country and rock. From a spring and fall concert, the Guild now includes five concert events per year.

The Guild has been and continues to be a team effort. Many community members deserve credit for its creation and success. Along with Mavis and Marlo Schaffner, there were Art Zasio, Ken and Dorothy Cable, Dr. Vick Knight, Audrey Barrows, Carol Vaughn and Shirley Beauttas. There have been dozens of others who contributed their time, energy and creative talents to this program. With changing demographics of our community, music styles change and The Guild will continue to evolve accordingly. Therefore, we seek your continued input and support for this program. The Guild intends to continue delivering quality music at an affordable price to help Canyon Lake remain a little bit of paradise.
