About ADCA

Founded in 1980 by pianist and music educator Tilsia Brens in New York City, the Association of Dominican Classical Artists (ADCA) has as its mission to: foster appreciation in the United States for the art and folkloric music of the Dominican Republic; create performance space for its artist members; bring live performances and music education to communities with little or no access to both. ​We advance our mission by presenting concerts and educational programs.
ADCA is a 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of ADCA must be made payable to Association of Dominican Classical Artists only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
