Dear Patrons

On behalf of the entire Soka Performing Arts Center staff, our hearts go out to everyone impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly, and we send heartfelt thanks to the healthcare workers around the world who inspire us with their selflessness in working tirelessly on the front lines.

We also thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these uncharted waters of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

As you know, the directives from Governor Newsom’s office forced us to postpone all our remaining shows in our 19-20 Season. Once again, state and county officials have made it clear that gathering for indoor concerts during the spring of 2021 will not be safe nor permitted. Regrettably, we once again will need to postpone all spring 2021 concerts to fall 2021 and spring 2022, as the safety of our patrons, our students, volunteers, and staff will always remain our top priority.

Music is our passion, and it is our first instinct to find comfort in hard times with the shared experience of live music. Not being able to present live music on our stage is heartbreaking, but we must consider the health and well-being of all who enter our doors. We will keep monitoring the situation closely with government and health officials, and keep you informed.

  3. Receive an account credit for the original purchase price.

Our physical Box Office on campus is closed to walk up service until further notice.

Our staff is working remotely to protect everyone’s health and safety. However, our Box Office Staff is able to answer emails, and respond to messages left at the Box Office phone number within 24-48 hours during our business hours Mon-Fri, 10am-2pm.

The preferred method of communication with our Box Office is through email at, and will be the fastest method of receiving a reply. You may leave a message at the Box Office at 949-480-4ART (4278), however, please note that due to current circumstances, call volume and length of wait-time for a response has increased dramatically.

As we face this crisis together, remember that the human spirit is indomitable. We will return to live music and the shared feelings of joy and connection. Do you remember the last live concert you attended? I invite you to re-imagine those feelings. Hold onto it. Let it sustain you until we can gather again and celebrate the exquisite experience of live music.

We will return.

Stay well and stay healthy.
