The Mission of the Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra is to enrich the cultural community of Ventura County by providing performance of classical and contemporary music to audiences of all generations.
Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra (CHICO) hosts five concerts per year in two locations: Camarillo and Ventura, California.
CHICO is a non-profit charitable 501(c)(3) organization administered by an 8–member board of directors. Dr. KuanFen Liu is CHICO’s artistic director. CHICO includes more than fifty professional musicians from Ventura County. For example:
Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra provides a high quality venue for talented young performers in Ventura County. CHICO invites local youths, 21 years or younger, to audition to perform a solo with the orchestra. For audition information CLICK HERE
