Villa Musica moves into new home

Villa Musica, San Diego’s nonprofit Community Music Center, will host an open house celebration for its first dedicated facility from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 26 and 27 at 10373 Roselle Street, Suite 170 in Sorrento Valley. The new building will be home to six studios, rehearsal and recital spaces, and a gathering area where participants’ family members can access the Internet, do homework and sip coffee.

Villa Musica was founded in 2005 by Fiona Chatwin, a native of Australia and a graduate of the doctoral program in music at UCSD. After four years of holding classes in several locations around town, Villa Musica will centralize its classes, programs and camps at the Sorrento Valley location.

Chatwin said she envisioned creating a center that would enable people of all ages and backgrounds to discover, explore and enhance their music skills as part of a network of musicians, educators and lovers of music. California is home to 18 community music centers, but Villa Musica is San Diego’s first and only.

The move was made possible by a matching grant from Heather Chisholm-Chait. With the matching grant as an incentive, Villa Musica was able to raise $50,000.

Villa Musica is registering students for the summer session that begins June 28 at (858) 405-2691.
