The Borrego Springs Community Concert Association was founded in 1975, and originally held concerts in the multi-purpose room at the high school. Students have always been invited to attend any of our concerts at no charge. Beginning in 1999, the Association began the tradition of adding a student outreach concert each season, which was held during the school day and was attended by all the students. In 2005, we moved our concerts to the Borrego Springs Performing Arts Center, and began providing additional student concerts each season.
Since 2015, the Association has made it a priority to hold three student programs each season, one for each of the schools (Elementary school, Middle school, and High school). The Association pays for the transportation costs to bus the students to the Performing Arts Center.
In 2017, in partnership with The Springs at Borrego RV Park, we began to offer an additional Americana themed "Free Outdoor Concert" to the community, with an additional school performance the following day.
