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.
“The Piano Boys” are brothers, Zeyn and Rhyan Shweyk. Both play the piano and have been attending concerts through our “Free Seats for Families” program for years. Thanks to you, our donors. You have provided opportunities for young musicians and their families to attend and learn from our concerts.
