April in Santa Cruz

Welcome to the online program for April in Santa Cruz Creative Music and Arts Festival 2024.

The annual April in Santa Cruz  festival (AiSC) returns this year with UC Santa Cruz faculty and graduate students, renowned guest artists, and several visiting Minzu University dance and music faculty and students from Beijing, China. This year's focus and theme, "A Time For Change!", is interdisciplinary: concerts and events feature various creative styles, approaches, and include assorted guest collaborations with UCSC performers.

Co-sponsored by UC Santa Cruz's Music Department and Digital Arts and New Media Program (DANM) with additional generous support from Chancellor Cynthia Larive’s ACEI Digital Art Project on Policing and Campus Climate grant, and Arts Division Dean Celine Parreñas Shimizu’s DEI funds.
