Villa Musica’s Art and Music Society

Thank you again, to the Parker Foundation for the funds to renovate our Chisholm-Chait Recital Hall -finished in November 2010.  The walls became gallery space for local artists, giving us wonderful opportunities for Visual Art and Music collaboration!

VMAMS member support has provided for a concert by Villa Musica’s accomplished faculty, and a short lecture by the Visual Artist in Residence, every two months.

These events aim to celebrate all the best things in life: gourmet food, wine, music and art – served along with inspiring conversations by the artists. We look forward to seeing you there!

To become a member or if you have any questions, please contact: Nina Baker by email: or by phone: (858) 550 8100.
