Aimusic serves almost 200 predominantly Chinese American students in a typical year, and presents more than 30 concerts and an annual festival for audiences of more than 7,000 people from throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Based in San Jose, Aimusic serves almost 200 predominantly Chinese American students each year, and presents more than 30 concerts and an annual festival for audiences of more than 7,000 people throughout the Bay Area.
for general operating support  
Aimusic is a training ground for students learning traditional Chinese music, instruments, and cultural practices, serving more than 200 students. The San Jose-based organization features multiple performing ensembles including Firebird Youth Chinese Orchestra, made up of young musicians performing throughout the year. Aimusic has a strong subsidized tuition program for students from low-income families, and maintains a low student-to-teacher ratio. With renewal support, Aimusic will continue its training program and present concerts. Continued funding will also support a newly developed international Chinese music festival featuring artists from mainland China and cultural exchange activities.
