The 71st Season of the IWVCA will present exciting and entertaining programs
that we hope you will want to see.

The IWVCA offers Student Education Programs that are presented free of charge to the attending students.

The Student Education Outreach Programs are in addition to the evening performances. There will be 3 Student Programs in the 2017-18 season -- presented by the following groups:   Spanish Brass, Kit and the Kats, and Yesterday Beatles Tribute.   The Concert Association policy is that senior citizens and the general public are always welcome to attend these Student Education Programs, free of charge -- if seating is available.

Here's our lineup for the 2017-18 Season

These concerts will be funded in part by a grant from Southern California Edison.
