The expansion continues!
The Con4Char team is beyond excited to announce the establishment of a Concerts 4 Charities club at the Orange County School of Arts (OCSA). Under Gabriel Chen @gabe._.real, OCSA’s club will operate in collaboration with existing Irvine Unified School District sites, all under Concerts 4 Charities Corp.
Special thanks to the OCSA Con4Char club’s advising teacher, Ms. Serwoo Lim, for setting us on our way!
We hope that our new establishment in a passionate and prestigious arts school such as OCSA, may further our musical mission’s impact!
Students with @ocsarts.net emails may join through google classroom with the code: uj2ljuw.
First, I would like to wish everyone good health during the pandemic. On behalf of the Concerts 4 Charities leadership team, I wish you all well.
Searching through the internet, cooking up new event ideas, and preparing for the 2020-2021 season amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, I have come across some helpful websites that feature our very own non-profit. I will link them below.
There will be exciting new information coming soon regarding virtual events and expansion into new school districts. Stay tuned!

COVID-19 Video Finished
I'm exited to inform you all that the video for our COVID-19 project has been finished. Special thanks to our Vice President Madison Lee for editing together a great performance. Thanks to all participating performers as well.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we must cancel the performances in the near future. This included our April 12th concert at Heritage Pointe. My sincere apologies for the inconvenience and I hope we can get through this pandemic together as a community.
In place of concerts, we will be filming home concerts (each performer filming their performances from home). There will be a video organized by our president and vice-president (Justin Pai and Madison Lee), which will be sent out to various cooperating retirement homes and other co-workers through the years (City of Irvine officials, Irvine City Television staff, school advisers, and more). We hope to continue our mission to spread joy with music even during this challenging time. The video is set to be completed by the end of the first full week of April and will be shared on the website.
We, as a non-profit organization, wish you and your families all good health and safety during this quarantine period.
(President and CEO)
I am so pleased to announce that the kind staff at Irvine City Television (ICTV) has collaborated with us for a feature on their news channel. Thanks so much to the staff and all of of the members of the club for making this experience possible.
Sunday Paper LA Times
We are so excited to announce that we have been featured in today's edition of the Los Angeles Times Sunday Paper! Endless thanks to all the members and parents of this club who make all of this possible.
Los Angeles Times!
I am so incredibly proud to announce that our non-profit organization has been featured in the Los Angeles Times! What an incredible experience and opportunity it was to be interviewed by a news source of such high reputation! We are incredible proud of all of our members and parents who made this possible!
Hope you are all doing well! I am thrilled to announce that through the tireless work of our treasurer, Titus Ng, we have been able to organize a fundraiser in cooperation with Chipotle Mexican Grill. The profit that will be donated to us will go towards financing club expenses such as presidential awards, payment for legal business, and payment for the filing of our 501 c3 form. Bring your family and friends! See you all there!
