YOU can make a difference!

During this unprecedented time when around the country, performing arts organizations have gone dark, your Santa Barbara Symphony has found a way to continue to deliver on our mission to engage, inspire and connect. 

A first for our organization, this live-streamed concert continues the Symphony’s 7-concert season while we are prevented from gathering together in the concert hall.

During the pandemic, we’ve experienced a significant loss of ticket revenue, and invite you to consider making a donation in support of our commitment to employ our musicians, continue our award-winning music education programs, and bring music to our community when you need us the most.

He has performed with LA Opera, The Industry Opera, Long Beach Opera, Savonlinna Opera Festival of Finland, Banlieurs Bleues Festival of France and the Ravinia Music Festival, to name a few. He has appeared with Pacific Symphony, Arizona Symphony, Santa Fe Symphony, Luckman Jazz orchestra, Pasadena Pops Orchestra, California Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Telemann Chamber Orchestra of Japan.
