Resolved to do everything we can to exercise caution and promote a speedy containment of Corona virus (COVID-19) in our community, we have postponed the performances of Sea Pictures and Jubilate Deo.

Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra (CHICO) offers five concerts a year. The 2019-2020 calendar year has programs in October, December, February, April and June, with Saturday-evening concerts held in Camarillo and Sunday afternoon-performances held in Ventura.


Our next concert (to be announced) will include Sea Pictures composed by Sir Edward Elgar for voice and orchestra. Vocal soloist is mezzo-soprano Louise Lofquist. Jubilate Deo composed by Daniel Forrest brings to life the global aspect of the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands.”
