The Nexus at First

Enriching Community Connections

Redefining community connections by utilizing our newly expanded stage area at First United Salmon Arm.


a relationship or connection between people or things

From our first memories, music and dance have helped forge connections between people. Some say artistic expression emerges from the human spirit. 

In the summer of 2016, First United in Salmon Arm embarked upon a journey to enrich connections within our community through the creation of “The Nexus at First”. With the help of local volunteers, the traditional church sanctuary was converted into a versatile community performance space with wonderfully bright acoustics, a 1000 square foot stage and comfortable, raked seating for up to 325 patrons.

Since opening in September 2016, feedback from performers and audiences alike has been spectacular. The Nexus at First is proud to now regularly host such groups as the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra, the Salmon Arm Jazz Club and many others.

We encourage you to forge new connections through the exploration of performance, and to join us at any of the upcoming events listed on our “Events” page.  We look forward to seeing you at The Nexus at First!
