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 committment to employ our musicians, continue our award-winning music education programs, and bring music to our community when you need us the most.
Gilles Apap, Violin
Described by Yehudi Menuhin as “A true violinist of the 21st century,” Gilles is known for his virtuosity, unique approach to music and the skill to bring joy to every concert hall. He delivers distinctive performances of the standard classical repertoire combined with genres such as jazz and folk from around the world and the result is unique programming merging the borderlines between musical styles.
As a soloist Gilles has performed with orchestras such as Leipzig Gewandhaus, San Francisco and Vancouver Symphonies, Hamburg Philharmonic, Boston Philharmonic, Berliner Symphoniker, Russian National Philharmonic, Israel Philharmonic, often directing as well as performing an extensive list of violin concertos. Gilles is also very involved in education with his teaching philosophy connecting strongly with cultural diversity and the freedom of interpretation through improvisation.
