Our Concert History

Founded in 1975 by a group of dedicated individuals, the Concert Association held its first season of concerts in 1976-1977, offering three concerts with a budget of $3750.

The concerts were held in the High School Multi-Purpose Room, fashioned into a concert hall with a portable stage, bleachers, and folding chairs. It was a common sight to see concert goers "dressed to the nines" arriving with cushions under their arms.

After the first two seasons, the Association added an additional "Donor's Concert," made possible by generous contributors. Memorable concerts during  those early years included the William Hall Chorale, duo-pianists Stecher and Horowitz (two concert grand pianos on the portable stage!) the Warsaw Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, the American Boy Choir, the Russian State Chorus, and the Harry James Orchestra.

Beginning in 2005, the Association moved its concerts to the Performing Arts Center, where we are currently enjoying comfortable seating and much improved lighting and sound. With continuing support from generous donors in the community, we are confident that the Community Concert Association will  continue to provide quality entertainment in Borrego Springs for many years to come.
