The Santa Barbara Symphony
Music Van Program

Our traveling Music Van typically visits over 50 schools in the greater Santa Barbara area each year, giving students a hands-on experience with the instruments of the orchestra. We are thrilled to be offering our program in person again for the 2022-23 school year! Our Music Van Video is also still available to any school and classroom free of charge.

  • Learn about each instrument that makes up a symphony orchestra
  • Watch how each instrument is played and hear how each instrument sounds
  • Get inspired to learn your favorite instrument!
