Lodi Community Concert Assocation is a non-profit, all volunteer managed organization dedicated to presenting the best of the performing arts to the residents of the San Joaquin Valley and surrounding areas. We believe that live concerts are an essential part of any community's culture landscape, even more so when economic conditions are difficult. We hope you will join Lodi Community Concert Association and enjoy these beautiful concerts with us!
The Lodi Community Concert Association began providing live performances in 1946 on the stage of the Lodi High School Auditorium. We are proud of the 76 years of quality performances that have been brought to Lodi with the continued support of the community.
The Association's goal has been, since that first concert in 1946, to promote cultural arts by planning, organizing, and promoting concerts providing a means for community members to attend local music concerts. Throughout the years, concerts have featured not only professional musicians brought in through talent agencies, but also local area musicians to perform for the Lodi and surrounding area citizens.
The Lodi Community Concert Association is committed to providing concerts to local school children. The funds raised through the Association's ticket sales and donations provide the revenue to sponsor these concerts. The Association pays for the performer, the venue, and the transportation needs to bring 800 students to watch a live performance each year. For many of these 4th-6th grade children, it is their first time at a live performance in a concert setting. We also award a deserving high school graduate the $1,000.00 Richard Irizary Performing Arts Scholarship to apply toward higher education.
