Become a Chico Performances Member/Donor Help Support the Arts in Our Community

At Chico Performances we are committed to providing our community with the best and most diverse variety of annual arts events possible. It might mean a ballet company from half way around the world or a singer-songwriter from Northern California. It could be a funky jazz trio on Saturday night or an Irish fiddler. We endeavor to bring it all to our community.

Another thing we strive for is to present live performing arts to children at an early age so they may grow to appreciate what we already know, that the arts are inspirational and transformational. Annually, Chico Performances welcomes more than 15,000 children to our Field Trip performances. We also try to meet the community where they are whether that means taking artists into schools, underserved rural communities, assisted living centers, or wherever an artist might be most impactful.

We work hard to keep ticket prices as low as possible to all of our shows. Through subsidy from the University, grants, and with gracious Corporate Sponsorship we hope we are able to make a night on the town or a morning school bus trip affordable. It is always a challenge and this is where you come in...

By becoming a Member/Donor of Chico Performances, you become part of the team whose mission it is to enrich the cultural vitality of our community. Your gift to Chico Performances ensures that artists who might otherwise drive by Chico stop for a night, and that kids who otherwise might grow up having never seen a modern ballet or live theatrical performance have that opportunity. It helps us say that even though we're a town of less than 100,000 folks, we are a town rich in culture and art.

I hope you will consider becoming a Member/Donor of Chico Performances. Listed below are the benefits of your annual gift, including receiving early access to season tickets and special events.

Thank you for supporting the arts at Chico State.

Sincerely,
Stephen Cummins
Director, University Public Events
Chico Performances and NSPR
