DoCha is a community celebration – celebrating artists who chose to make Champaign their home – adding to the positive energy of Downtown Champaign!
Here’s more from event directors:
– FREE – high quality live music performances – Family friendly environment – a relaxing night out.
We bring live, high-quality chamber music to downtown Champaign. Presented for FREE, in a casual and educational manner to make our shows accessible to our entire community.
Our vision is for an inclusive weekend of music making, which allows the audience an opportunity to experience live music up close so that they may experience the special communication and relationship between performers. We hope that by bringing world-class music to downtown that we are adding to the incredible energy that is growing downtown. We also desire to provide an opportunity for the community to experience something that they might not ordinarily experience.
In addition to three evening concerts, we also offer two family concerts in which we present a musical play, which is fun, engaging and educational. This year’s play is entitled, Musical Moods, it is an opportunity for families to get out of the house, experience live music and theatre, ask questions of the musicians and additionally check out the Children’s Science Museum.
The Friday morning 10am show is also a wonderful opportunity for elementary school teachers to expose their classes to live music making as well as learn how composers use music to express moods.
10th Anniversary Music Festival will take place April 5-7, 2019 at the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum Theater.
