Pablo Sáinz Villegas
The Santa Barbara Symphony is proud to announce guitarist extraordinaire Pablo Sáinz Villegas as our first-ever Artist-in-Residence! In addition to performing on our main subscription season, Pablo will also be doing active music education outreach through our Music Education Center throughout the 2017-18 season.
Letter from Pablo
Music is a journey through our imagination; it is a journey to the most intimate part of our emotions where we connect with what we really are and with others. Music creates a magical experience that allows a feeling of discovery, of being present in the moment and of belonging as part of a great community.
I am very excited about my upcoming artist-in-residence program with you and the Santa Barbara Symphony during the 2017/18 season. I am eager to offer the best of myself and to inspire through the six strings of my guitar. I look forward to discovering, being present and belonging to a community that already makes me feel so close to my roots of my beloved country, Spain.
I am counting the days to start this adventure together. Join me and become the star of this exciting journey!
The artist-in-residence program is made possible by the Elaine F. Stepanek Foundation.
