SBCO depends more upon donations from individuals than any other source of income. Ticket sales alone do not cover the wonderful music provided by Maestro Ohyama and our world-class musicians. Please join us and help support this Santa Barbara treasure.
As many of you may be aware, the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra is undergoing a transition concerning our 2017 - 2018 concerts and future seasons. We have made a decision to place our upcoming season on a temporary hold, as we reexamine our organization and our future as a chamber orchestra.
Our May 16th concert "Schumann Squared" will be performed in memory of Michael Towbes. Mr. Towbes was an integral part of our organization for many years. We are honored to present our final concert of the season in his memory.
The SBCO gave lyricism and life to both the works by Mozart. Like finely crafted crystal, these pieces were specimens of proportion and light.”
We are fortunate to enjoy the quality performances which the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra brings to us.”
As long-time supporters of SBCO we have seen the orchestra grow into the fine ensemble it is today. It plays a vital role in the cultural richness of this community.”
