SCFPA invites you to:
Live cultural performances with you at the heart.
There is only one way in the scenic Santa Cruz valley to experience breathtaking, soul enriching, world class arts performances - through the Santa Cruz Foundation for the Performing Arts - with its unique events steeped in rich, diverse cultural heritage. Please take some time to browse our site and learn more about our concert series and about our plans to create an exquisite performing arts venue in Santa Cruz County, Arizona.
Imagine an intimate 200 seat recital hall in the desert less than an hour from Tucson and accessible from anywhere in Santa Cruz, Pima and Cochise counties.
Imagine hearing, local, national and international performers in a superb acoustical site, elegantly designed in the Sonoran Mission Style.
Imagine attending pre concert talks, post concert receptions, educational programs, master classes, music festivals and seasonal workshops.
Imagine partnering with other like minded organizations to share their touring artists; drawing from the wealth of talent available from all parts of the world.
Imagine this and more - available for future generations of artists and audiences.
However, until these images become a reality with the construction of our facility, we will continue to offer outstanding concerts in private homes, ranches and historic places.
We hope that you will become interested enough to learn more about the SCFPA and help us make Santa Cruz County a mecca for music and the performing arts.
