Support vocal music in Ventura County!
CICA currently sponsors two vocal music programs in Ventura county, and would love to build on this foundation for education and performance opportunities. These programs require time and talent, but they also require funding. With your help, we can all fulfill our mission!
Founded in 2004, CICA depends on community support through interested private and corporate supporters. Donor appreciation events, held periodically in addition to performances, offer a perfect opportunity to meet and mingle with members of the board and performing groups. If you love music, then please consider attending our next event or use the contact information at the bottom of this page to learn how you can help encourage music in our area.
“Music matters. It stimulates the brain in ways that traditional academics cannot and aids intellectual and emotional development; it’s crucial to our society and personal well-being. Yet music funding is being sacrificed across the country, our local music programs included. This is a major loss; during tough times, we need music more than ever to aid in coping with stress.
Growing up in Taiwan, I received music education on a daily basis in the public school system. Every student was encouraged to play at least one instrument and sing in a vocal ensemble throughout elementary and middle schools. After college, I was fortunate to come to the United States to pursue advanced degrees from some of the best graduate schools. The solid music foundation, inspiration and encouragement I received in Taiwan helped me excel in these music conservatories. It is my mission and passion to recreate that opportunity for the kids in the community I now call home.
Please join me in keeping music alive in our schools and communities! Your financial contribution to Channel Islands Choral Association will bring vocal music education and performances to Ventura County. Help us fulfill our mission! I promise that you -- and the community you love -- will benefit from the joy that music can bring to everyone’s life.
Thank you for your support!”
