The Folsom Concert Association History

About Us

In 1994, a group of Folsom residents interested in the performing arts formed the first Board of Directors of a fledgling concert association. The Folsom Lake Community Concert Association (FLCCA) grew out of their interest and willingness to serve their community. In 2019, approaching the 25th anniversary, the name was changed to Folsom Concert Association (FCA). The Association continues its dedication to bringing concerts of the highest quality to the greater Folsom area by contracting with national and international talent to provide diverse genres of music for their patrons and guests. Besides providing quality talent at affordable prices, we give back to our community by providing scholarships, and an outreach program for students and seniors.

The Folsom Concert Association’s Mission:

To Organize and Present

  • An affordably priced, annual musical performance season for the benefit of
    Sacramento area residents.

To Foster, Recognize, and Encourage an Appreciation of Music

  • By our free outreach program, which brings
    professional musicians to students in K-12 schools and to senior citizens in residential living communities who cannot
    attend a theater presentation.
  • By encouraging our next generation of musicians through our Scholarship Program that
    awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors who plan to pursue a performing arts education in a college or

What We Do:

  • College Scholarships

    Each year, the Folsom Concert Association offers scholarships to local graduating seniors who plan to continue their musical education in college.

  • Outreach to Schools

    We are able to send professional musicians to our local schools to introduce our student population to performers and various forms of music such as jazz, R&B, bluegrass, harps, etc.

  • Music in Memory Care Facilities

    The number of seniors who reside in assisted living facilities and memory care facilities is growing rapidly. Many of these seniors find it difficult or impossible to get to live concerts. The FCA mission includes bringing professional musicians to these facilities, especially facilities that have a very limited budget for musical performances.
