Lodi Community Concert Association

Cultivating culture in the heart of wine country for 75 years

About the Lodi Community Concert Association

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 75 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.

The Board members are volunteers who give of their time and talents to provide quality concerts to local community members. It is a non-profit association relying on donations from local businesses and community members.

We hope that you will consider becoming a sponsor or subscriber to the Lodi Community Concert Association!
