Musco Center fills a special place in the entertainment landscape of Southern California. Immense, yet intimate. A destination, yet so close to home. And nestled right in the charm of Old Towne Orange. Our guests return again and again for the world-class experience, inspirational artistry, and trustworthy customer service. Now, The Musco Circle of Friends offers you more access, wonderful benefits, and the satisfaction of supporting the growth of a truly remarkable new landmark at Chapman University.
