Channel Islands Choral Association is a non-profit community organization dedicated to supporting vocal music education and performance in Ventura County. Based in Camarillo, CICA seeks community and corporate support to provide musical experiences and opportunties to Ventura, Port Hueneme, Oxnard, Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, and the entire Channel Islands area.

They also sponsor an annual collaboration with Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra (CHICO) for a joint concert under Artistic Director Dr. KuanFen Liu.

CICA is always seeking new opportunities to promote vocal music around Ventura County. New proposals may be considered, and new projects may be added to this web site from time to time. Please use the contact information below to share your ideas or to learn how you can help.

Spring 2015 Auditions Are Here!

The CSU Channel Islands Choir is now holding auditions for its combination university-community choir. Auditions will be held by appointment the week of January 12-18, 2015. At this time, the choir is specifically looking for tenors, baritones and basses.

Contact the choir's choral director, Dr. KuanFen Liu, at 805-278-0375 or, to schedule an audition.

For 2015, concerts will be performed in early May and December. The highlight of the May concert will be the performance of Haydn’s Creation Oratorio, accompanied by the Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra and professional soloists. Inspired by Haydn’s trips to England, where he first heard Handel’s oratorios, The Creation is widely considered Haydn’s crowning masterpiece. Based on both the biblical Genesis and Milton’s Paradise Lost, the oratorio depicts and celebrates the creation of the world.
