The Santa Barbara Symphony Moves Two February Concerts To The Lobero Theatre Due To The Granada Theatre’s Water Damage

Serenade for Romance: Valentine’s Week! with Violin Soloist Sirena Huang will be performed on Saturday, February 17 at 3:00 pm and 7:30 pm

Due to the recent water damage at The Granada Theatre, The Santa Barbara Symphony has moved its two February concerts to the Lobero Theatre—both to be held on Saturday, February 17, 2024—at 3:00 pm and 7:30 pm. The Lobero is located at 33 E. Canon Perdido St. in Santa Barbara. 

Important instructions for current ticket holders are as follows: 

Due to the reduced capacity of the venue, and the popularity of the performances, all current ticket holders are being requested to reconfirm their attendance so they may be issued a ticket for the concerts at the Lobero. Instructions to do so have been sent by email to ticket holders. 

Current ticket holders for the Saturday, February 17 evening performance, formerly at The Granada Theatre, will have first priority to receive tickets to the Saturday, February 17, 7:30 pm concert at The Lobero Theatre. 

Current ticket holders for the Sunday, February 18 matinee performance, formerly at The Granada Theatre, will have first priority to receive tickets to the Saturday, February 17, 3 pm matinee concert at the Lobero Theatre

“Audiences are in for a very special experience hearing this glorious music in an intimate setting,” shared Kathryn R Martin, Symphony President & CEO. “A big thank you to our musicians, staff, and our colleagues at the Lobero and Granada who are working around the clock to ensure that the show will go on!” she added. 

Ticket holders have received detailed instructions from The Symphony via email, and Symphony staff and the Lobero box office are available by phone to assist at 1-888-4LOBERO (1-888-456-2376). 

The swoon-worthy Valentine’s Week program will feature the following: 

● Sir Edward Elgar | Serenade for Strings 

● Antonín Dvořák | Violin Concerto 

● Ludwig van Beethoven | Symphony No. 7 

With the venue shift, there has been one change to the concert program. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 will replace Farrenc’s Symphony No. 3 originally scheduled. It is hoped to reschedule her 1847 work in a future season. 

Tickets for upcoming performances in March and beyond are on sale and can be purchased in-person, online, or by calling the Granada Theatre box office at (805) 899-2222 or visiting
