Concert made its debut on Canadian television in September of 1952. Its simple presentation of televised classical concerts continued on an inconsistent basis until 1965. This meant that the program was often seen during the summer or for short month-long sessions. Most of the programs featured guest vocalists and conductors, with a strong Canadian presence. In fact, each show had at least one composition by a Canadian. Many of the later programs in the series originated in Winnipeg, featuring Louis Applebaum, Victor Feldbrill, and The Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
