SCVFA Membership

SCVFA events are open to the general public, but we are an all-volunteer non-profit membership organization.
Our members are what keep us going. We welcome you to join us!

SCVFA membership entitles you to:

  • Reduced adult admission to the regular monthly Jams  (minors under 18 are free)
  • A household subscription to The Fiddler's Rag, our monthly newsletter
  • Advance information about upcoming SCVFA events
  • Volunteer opportunities: Play or help at performances, work at the membership desk, coordinate workshops, or write for the newsletter. Volunteering helps put you in touch with the SCVFA community and other like-minded musicians.

Dues: An individual membership for the first member in a household is $20 per year. It includes a subscription to our newsletter, the Fiddler's Rag. Dues for other adults or children in the same household sharing a newsletter subscription (if delivered via USPS) are only $2 per person per year.

All household members have equal rights, with the exception that a member must be 18 or older to become a Trustee (director) or officer of the Association.
