The Association of Dominican Classical Artists, Inc. (ADCA) was founded in 1980 by musicians and composers of Dominican descent living and working in New York City. ADCA has as its mission to foster appreciation for the classic and folkloric music of the Dominican Republic or created by composers of Dominican and Latin American descent living in the United States, and to create performance spaces for its artists. We accomplish our mission by presenting concerts and educational programs free of charge for the community.

ADCA offers a series of chamber music concerts at the Aaron Davis Hall, City College of New York, with the purpose of fostering appreciation of Dominican and Latino art and music by bringing educational and live performances to communities with little or no access to both.
