A New Year Message from President & CEO Kathryn Martin
Kathryn takes a minute during a recent Orchestra rehearsal at The Granada Theatre — our 20/21 Season Grand Venue Sponsor — to share updates, thank you’s, and some information on next Season!
We feel tremendous gratitude for all of the support we’ve received from donors, community partners, and our entire Santa Barbara Symphony family! Thank you for making it all possible!
We are here for the community, and YOU have been here for the Symphony.
Our Next Show
Fanfare for the Common Man
April 17, 2021
Brass, winds, percussion, oh my! Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, an American standard, and it’s updated response, Joan Tower’s Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman is the perfect way to spotlight our talented symphony brass section. In this All-American program, members of the Symphony will also perform another Copland’s setting of Old American Songs, as well as a brand new work by young composer George Gianopoulos, featuring Award-winning, bass-baritone Cedric Berry! Our strings will come together for Robin Frost’s Serenade for Strings, and George Walker’s Lyric for Strings, and our wind section will perform Samuel Barber’s Summer Music for Wind Quintet. Also included in the program is The Unanswered Question by Charles Ives.
