“Music Academy is especially interested in this program, not as some sort of ancillary thing... it’s central and integral to what Music Academy is and what it wants to be for the community,” said McKibben. “They recognize how important young people are and how they really can become truly amazing artists.”



This summer’s collaboration, executed through the YPC National program, will bring over 50 students ages 14 to 18 from New York City, as well as students from other parts of the country, to enjoy Santa Barbara’s sunshine. After three years of the pandemic preventing tours, Núñez is thrilled to take the choir on tour and be Music Academy summer residents.

“I think what we both really admire and understand is that young people are capable of so much,” said Sing! Program Director Erin McKibben of the collaboration. “For me, it’s a celebration of young people and the community of Santa Barbara,” said YPC Artistic Director and Founder Francisco J. Núñez.

New York City, YPC serves 2,000 students each year, performing about 100 concerts a year and traveling nationwide and internationally. Recently nominated for an Emmy, the choir engages students of all backgrounds to sing a wide range of musical genres, from classical to contemporary.

During the pandemic, Music Academy Chief Artistic Officer Jamie Broumas reached out to YPC to compare strategic plans, goals, and methods

YPC choristers ages 14 to 18 will perform in Santa Barbara

A free, after-school program, Sing! has helped hundreds of first to sixth-grade students from 33 local elementary schools discover a love for singing. Participating children explore different cultures through song, develop confidence and vocal skills, and are granted the opportunity to perform with Music Academy musicians, previously performing alongside the London Symphony Orchestra this past March.

“I’m very excited about that and singing in Hahn Hall, and Music Academy is one of the greatest festivals in the country,” said Núñez, adding with a laugh, “But what my children are looking forward to are the beaches of Santa Barbara.” Saturday’s concert will be the result of four days of intensive workshops between the two choirs, including both solo YPC performances and collaborations with Sing!. After a fun, welcome barbeque earlier this week, Sing! and YPC students have practiced together every day to prepare the concert’s diverse program. “I know that every day they’re going to really get to know each other better,” said Núñez. “And they’re going to be able to not only Continued on page 10

Local Students Discover Fishing Through Police Activities League’s Vamos a Pescar Program


ULTIVATING A LOVE FOR THE OUTDOORS AND INTRODUCING A LIFELONG HOBBY TO LOCAL YOUTH, the Santa Barbara Police Activities League (PAL) has launched its Vamos a Pescar program to teach students how to fish. Over the last three months, PAL has taken groups on fishing excursions on Goleta Pier, Lake Cachuma, and a sportfishing boat off the coastline. “The fishing events have been tremendously popular amongst our students and offer them a new opportunity to get outside and explore all that Santa Barbara has to offer! Our local police officers chaperone these events, which are wonderful opportunities for relationshipbuilding with the youth,” said Judie Lugo, Executive Director of PAL.

PAL received funding from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Vamos a Pescar Education Fund to offer these experiences. The organization strives to build the bridge between police offiers, kids, and our community through educational, athletic, and leadership enrichment programs.

For the majority of participating youth, this is the first time they have gone fishing. Participants range in age from six to 18 years old, attending ten different area schools. At each fishing event, students learn lessons about the cultural significance of fishing for the Chumash in Santa Barbara, keeping our oceans clean, and safe fishing practices. All participants receive fishing licenses and rods for them to keep.

“I felt happy and proud about being able to catch a fish, especially because it was my first time fishing with friends,” shared one student participant. “The wind was crazy and it made fishing hard. I had so much fun and can’t wait to go fishing again!”

Carpinteria Families Reap the Benefits

of Compassionate Care of Carpinteria’s Free Services


By Christopher Davis, WaveComm

ARPINTERIA IS A UNIQUE PLACE, with its own specific needs apart from the greater Santa Barbara area. With this in mind, Hospice of Santa Barbara made the decision just over five years ago, to begin a special relationship with the community of Carpinteria – to bring many of the same free Hospice of Santa Barbara programs to the Carpinteria Valley – in English and in Spanish. Thus, Compassionate Care of Carpinteria (CCC) was born. This relationship has flourished and grown as a result of both the need and the hard working and dedicated CCC staff and volunteers. Illustrating the need for the services of CCC, Tina Fanucchi-Frontado and her Greg Frontado and Tina Fanucchi-Frontado husband Greg Frontado agreed to tell the story of how CCC services touched their lives and benefited their family. Fanucchi-Frontado recalled that while she never stopped grieving the death of her brother Stephen in the early 90’s, it was the death of her mother Rosemarie that brought her to receive grief services. “It had been over a year since mom’s passing and although I knew with all my heart, she was in heaven, I just couldn’t come out of the grief,” explained Fanucchi-Frontado. “Everything felt heavy, hurting, dark, and sad….. The second time was during my dad’s illness and his transition.” Almost immediately upon receiving grief counseling service, Fanucchi-Frontado realized she was doing the right thing and in the right place. “Straight away I was understood,” she said. “I knew they knew exactly what I was experiencing and truly cared. I had a place to talk and share all I was feeling, from the fear of never coming out of it to the relentless sadness of constant heartbreak. It’s

impossible to find words that can describe all the moving parts of grief – For me it was a permanent change – the color of my world changed forever, everything went dull, flat, and it felt like my heart permanently moved to the outside of my body.” As someone who worked to bring the special services of Hospice of Santa Barbara to Carpinteria as Compassionate Care of Carpinteria, Fanucchi-Frontado wants her fellow Carpinterians to understand the value of the organization providing its free services right in town. “Grief and caregiving changes you; you think you know how you’ll act, think, feel, but it’s a journey you can never be fully prepared for. During these deep trials and tribulations is when we need others for support. CCC lovingly and gently provided that hand of comfort. Having these services right here in Carpinteria is an incredible offering and gift to our community,” FanucchiFrontado shared. Fanucchi-Frontado’s husband Greg Frontado utilized Compassionate Care of Carpinteria’s Patient Care Services to assist his mother when his father was ill. “My mother served as my dad’s full-time caregiver, as well as myself when I stepped in to relieve her,” explained Frontado. “It’s incredibly difficult having to make end-of-life and quality care decisions for your loved one. Its lots of pressure, second guessing yourself and having others question you. CCC helped to keep our family cohesive and supported through it all.” “We’ll be forever grateful for the support CCC provided our family – we were losing our patriarch, the love of my mother’s life and at times things felt like they were spinning completely out of control” said Frontado. “CCC did lots of hand holding, listening, comforting, and understanding. I can’t say enough about how much they helped us, and can’t imagine what our family would be today if CCC wasn’t there.”

Annual Fundraiser to Support Compassionate Care of Carpinteria Returns


OUR YEARS AGO, Compassionate Care of Carpinteria held its first fundraiser luncheon, The Light Shines Ahead, supporting the work of this important Carpinteria program. With professional surfer Shaun Tomson sharing his personal story of loss and healing, the event was a huge success. While COVID forced CCC to hold the event digitally in 2020 and 2021, CCC is excited bring the event back inperson this year.

MBITIOUS IN SCOPE, and challenging for the musicians, a riveting program that was mainly contemporary brought Teddy Abrams' conducting and programming talents to Hahn Hall on July 11th for an exciting evening, deftly played by the members of this summer’s Academy Chamber Orchestra.

A Cut Above the Rest


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

LAYING WITH FIRE TO SERVE UP SIZZLING RIBEYES, FILET MIGNON, WAGYU TRI-TIP, and more, Rare Society has opened its doors. Led by owner and Executive Chef Brad Wise, the restaurant celebrates Central Coast grilling traditions while honoring steakhouses of the past. Add an array of seafood, roasted vegetables, and signature cocktails, and Rare Society is a welcome addition to the downtown’s eclectic Chef Brad Wise eateries.

“I want Rare Society to be a place you go to celebrate something special, or just walk in on a Tuesday night and hang at the bar and have a good time,” shared Wise. “I want the community to feel as though this was built for them, because it was.” Originally from New Jersey, Wise’s journey to becoming a chef began when he started mopping floors in a pizza place as a twelveyear-old. He continued to work his way up in the restaurant industry, eventually becoming the Executive Chef at JRDN and Belmont Park in San Diego.

Rare Society

Today, Wise operates Trust Restaurant Group, a San Diego-based collective that includes Rare Society locations in University Heights and Solana Beach. Yet he always dreamed of expanding to Santa Barbara, given his passion for Santa Maria style grilling and his wife, Kristen, being a Central Coast local. In envisioning Rare Society, he worked to combine the vibes of East Coast steakhouses and casual Central Coast hotspots. The result is a Las Vegasinspired steakhouse boasting art deco decor above cozy booths to curate a swanky yet relaxed atmosphere.

The Associate Board

“As we were developing the idea for Rare Society, I wanted to land somewhere in-between those upscale steakhouses and the backyard bbq’s I experienced in Santa Maria,” explained Wise. “Las Vegas, in particular those 1950’s-era casinos, had the glitz and glam, but also had some cowboy to ‘em too, so it really fit what we wanted Rare Society to be, but re-interpret it in our style.” Further distinguishing Rare Society is its use of Santa Maria-style grilling. Burning American Red Oak, Wise

embraces the challenge of live fire to create robust flavor. “In a restaurant, you want to create consistency, but no two fires are the same, so how to continually plate the same dish, to taste the same way, using an entirely new fire is something I get great satisfaction from,” said Wise. Customers searching for a steakhouse experience can enjoy two signature meat boards: The Associate, serving wagyu cuts, and The Executive, featuring dry-aged meat. Both are served on Lazy Susans to prioritize sharing. Rare Society also offers a host of seafood dishes, such as lobster and oyster. Wise also plans to work with area fishermen to also serve spot prawns and uni. Sides include the likes of pickled fried onion rings, ricotta ravioli, and roasted vegetables. Finishing off the menu is a drinks selection offering twists on classic cocktails and luxurious desserts, including bananas foster cheesecake and butter cake. Going forward, Wise remains motivated to mentor young chefs and build community. He hopes the restaurant serves as a community gathering space. “We create opportunities to connect and come together, and it is my hope that our restaurant does just that for this town,” he said.

Meet A Fellow:

Tiffany Kang

By Samantha Muscio / VOICE


NSPIRED BY THE LIMITLESS POTENTIAL INTERPRETATIONS OF MUSIC and the originality of each performance, Tiffany Kang has returned for a second season at the Music Academy. Her first experience as a fellow was in 2018. Kang finds freedom on the stage, as after hours of preparation, her emotions can flow into violin performances.

Currently a masters degree student at Colburn Conservatory, she studies with Martin Beaver. She was third prize winner of the 2013 Schoenfeld International Competition and won the 2019 LACOColburn Conservatory Strings Mentorship Mock Audition. She has appeared with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and as a member of Street Symphony and Kontrapunktus. Kang looks forward to attending Music Academy’s masterclasses this summer and performing Franz Schubert Quintet in C Major at the X2 Series concert on Tuesday, August 2nd at 7:30pm at the Lobero Theatre. Kang toook a moment to some of her musical inspirations and experiences at Music Academy: VOICE: What first inspired you, and continues to inspire you, to pursue music?

Tiffany Kang: I would say it’s when I first really understood that there are inexhaustible interpretations of music. Limitless. It’s the small moments of observing masterclasses and performances, hearing pieces everyone studies and is familiar with, that continue to inspire me because not a single performance will be the same as another’s performance.

VOICE: What do you most enjoy about studying at the Music Academy?

Kang: This is my second year at the Music Academy and it has grown so much since my first time attending in 2018. It’s incredible how I get to do a little bit of everything - some solo stuff, chamber music, and orchestra - and those are things only music related. But what I love most is that despite our intensely packed schedules, everyone is so genuine and devoted to their craft and to each other. It’s why I came back! VOICE: What do you find fulfilling about performing?

Kang: That I can just let go on stage and the rollercoaster of emotions I can feel. Almost like an out-of-body experience. After putting hours and hours into a piece for a performance, sometimes my mind gets into a zone where I’m no longer paying attention to the minutia of the music, but where I am still focused and able to feel and move with music. I first felt that in high school while I was playing the Adagietto of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony. I was hyper aware of every sound and in the middle of the movement, I realized there were tears running down my face. VOICE: What are you most looking forward to this summer?

Kang: Working on a nice tan. But really, I look forward to attending as many masterclasses and performances as I can. It’s really wonderful to have access to this wonderful resource. Goldmine, really. www.musicacademy.org

Eugene Onegin:

“I am upon a dark bliss...” Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE


Soprano Johanna Will (Tatiana) and, Baritone Samuel Kidd (Eugene Onegin)

N EXPRESSIVE LOVE STORY, wrapped in a musical score from the very heart of Pyotr Tchaikovsky, ending tragically amongst the arias of the opera Eugene Onegin, was flawlessly performed by the Music Academy Lehrer Vocal Institute Opera fellows and Festival Orchestra in celebration of the Academy’s return to fully staged opera. Two performances of Tchaikovsky’s Pushkin-based opera took place last weekend, in a simply staged and spectacularly musical showcasing of the most promising young professional vocal talent studying at the Music Academy this summer. At the helm, Daniela Candillari, Michelle and Phil Joanou Endowed Opera Conductor – a force from the pit that could not be stopped!

Curtain call with cast of Eugene Onegin

but Tchaikovsky, his younger brother Modeste, and librettist Konstantin Shilovsky tweaked things here and there. “I am a realist and fundamentally a Russian,” Tchaikovsky has been quoted as declaiming, with emphasis on “realist.”

The libretto for Eugene Onegin largely follows Pushkin’s novel in verse,

Soprano Johanna Will (Tatiana), Baritone Samuel Kidd (Eugene Onegin) and Tenor Luke Norell (Lensky)


The operatic take on the Onegin narrative focuses on a callous cad (Eugene Onegin), who in his idle lusts and icecold treacheries messes up the lives of most everyone he encounters, including his best friend (Lensky) whom he teases for no particularly good reason, working the hapless fellow (a poet) into a rage, culminating in a pistol duel. Onegin promptly dispatches his erstwhile bosom buddy, sheds a crocodile tear, then is away. Tchaikovsky’s is a lyric opera studded with

The principal cast, whose musical energy determines the artistic outcome of any opera, but Onegin in particular, was extraordinary as a vocal collective, adept, with spot-on stagecraft. Baritone, Samuel Kidd, working toward his master’s degree at Yale School of Music, carried the title role of Eugene Onegin with appropriately aloof manner and dark vocal color. Soprano, Johanna Will, whose character Tatiana was of particular interest to Tchaikovsky, commanded the stage. Her voice, a powerhouse of intellectual intention and nuanced color, her reward was the instant allegiance of her audience. Fabulous, powerful, honed, articulate – a big career ahead.

Tenor, Luke Norell, a Resident Artist at the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia, has previously tackled the role of the naive dreamer soon to be corpse, Lensky. Little wonder then, his command of the role last Sunday was vocally, emotionally, artistically top-of-line, a thrilling wonder of sonic pacing and technical execution.

With vigor and clear-headed consciousness about the magnificence of the Onegin score – it’s glamour, it’s elegance of orchestration, it’s colossal prowess as musical art – conductor Candillari worked the 45 or so members of the Academy Festival Orchestra in the pit into a philharmonic of sound – intoxicating, lush, hugely attentive to color, balance, style, and musical subtext. Kudos to the stunning French horn section on Sunday afternoon (no hesitations, glorious ensemble playing). Bouquets to a string section sound that belied the body count: gigantic, clean, richly

baritone Eric DeLaGrange (Gremin), mezzo Sarah Margaret Dyer (Madame Larina), tenor Maximillian Jansen (Triquet), mezzo Quinn Middleman (Filipjevna), baritone Alex Mathews (Zaretsky), bass baritone Yue Wu (Captain), and tenor Jonathan Elmore (Guillot) rounded out the extraordinary cast.

Junior Lifeguard Competition Returns to SB N MY WAY DOWN CABRILLO BOULEVARD with camera and notepad close at hand, I tallied some of the many activities taking place along the waterfront over the last weekend. Decisions! Decisions! Should I visit the spectacular California Wine Festival appearing yearly along the beachside and in Chase Palm Park? Or perhaps view the start of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club’s summer Catalina Cruise? Or even a last look at the oversized images drawn by children of underwater scenes illuminated in the Maritime Museum’s Munger Theater? I’d already missed the fabulous Hawaiian Cruise complete with ukulele and hula girls on the Condor Express. But now, where to start? An unanticipated discovery halted my decision making instantly: an apparently huge activity in front of the newly renovated Cabrillo Pavilion. In passing, I’d spotted a large group of red canopies on the beach in front of the building and a bunch of young people running around with surfboards, kayaks, and other floatation devices. My curiosity got the better of me and I shot into an already overcrowded parking lot to investigate A generous soul indicated where his vacant parking spot was located so I was good to go!

Matt Fuhrer

The event taking place was the annual Junior Lifeguard Fiesta Invitational Competition hosted by the City of Santa Barbara. Open to all California Surf Lifesaving Association (CSLSA) and United States Lifesaving Association (USLS) current summer campers ages 8-17, the 2022 event was indeed special! Some of the multiple competition opportunities that took place that day included Distance Paddle, Run and Swim, Paddle Relay, Run-Swim-Run, Run Relay, Beach Flags, and Taplin (swim, run, paddle). Sounded to me like one of those reality survival shows but it was obvious that this tough competition was a kid’s idea of a really good time.

The California Junior Lifeguard Programs are 3-week long day camps providing instruction in first-aid, CPR, ocean safety, rescue techniques, surfing, and bodyboarding. Swimmers of all skill levels are eligible. Program topics include oceanography, first aid, CPR, water rescue techniques, mutual cooperation, competition techniques, and lifesaving methods. Instructors in this year’s event were a mix of local teachers and college students armed with experience in lifeguarding, actual Junior Lifeguard participation, and instructional programs. The weekend’s competition included over 1,000 young people from CSLA programs up and down the coast of California. Along with the red canopies on the strand were those of a variety of colors representing other CSLSA programs. Additionally the blue banners of UC Santa Barbara were pitched in various locations and seemed the ideal place to go for a little more information. A friendly instructor from UCSB, Matt Fuhrer, explained more about the UCSB program. “Our primary goal is to provide kids with water safety education! Being so close to the ocean our camp not only teaches safety but fun, with the campers playing water related games and sports along with other athletic actives.” He added, “It’s actually more than just a summer camp because it also builds a kid’s confidence, teamwork, and respect for our environment.” With a big Sigrid Toye writes Harbor Voice and volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project.

smile he concluded, “I like being an instructor … this is really an awesome job!” The competition ended around 3pm in deference to the clubs having to return home on Sunday evening. Walking back to my car I felt grateful for serendipitous events such as this that have led me down untraveled byways. Summer is indeed a special time not only for hundreds of Junior Lifeguards but for me to discover new adventures along the waterfront!

Condor Express Hawaiian Cruise – Let the Dancing Begin!


EVELERS ON THE CONDOR EXPRESS HAWAIIAN CRUISE – had to make a choice – stay on the island or return for another visit when Condor Express Captain Devin announced that a last minute malfunction meant that, unfortunately, (safety first) the Condor would stay at the dock for the evening. With leis abounding and party fair begging to be sampled, many decided to board the ship for a Hawaiian “Cruise” party – complete with Hawaiian Ukulele Master Troy Fernandez and his talented hula dancer daughters, Tia and Tory Fernandez. Passengers enjoyed a bevy of hors d’oeuvres and even tried out hula dancing under the guidance and example of Tia and Tory. It was also announced that passengers who desired could return instead for the Broadway Musical Cruise August 13th or the Opera Cruise September 10th.

FAIRYTALE OF A PRINCESS AND THE BRAVE MOUSE WHO LOVED HER, The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo shows that living happily ever after is possible, if not in the way originally expected. Published in 2003, the chapter book has become a modern classic, winning a Newbury medal. Utilizing gorgeous prose straightforward enough for ages nine and up to enjoy, DiCamillo crafts a tale rife with hope, love, heartache, and forgiveness. Readers follow Desperaux, a mouse who delights in reading fairytales, as he befriends the Princess Pea. However, as talking with humans is forbidden, the other mice sentence him to be at the mercy of the rats in the dungeon. The narrative’s perspective then shifts to Roscuro, a rat and the story’s antagonist, shining insight into his world. The narrative’s perspective later shifts to that of a castle servant named Miggery Sow, whose father traded her into service. As is the case with many fairy tales, The Tale of Despereaux deals with difficult topics, such as grief and abuse. Yet rather than dismiss these issues, the book’s narrator repeatedly breaks the fourth wall to check in with readers. Through this, as well as the book’s shifting perspectives, young readers realize the full weight and rationale of each character’s decisions — making acts of bravery, kindness, and forgiveness all the more powerful. The result is a thoughtful story that captures the value of embracing hope and goodness when the world is at its bleakest, emphasizing that it is always worthwhile to believe in “happily ever after.” az tesy of Am

When Does Inflation Endanger Growth? natural gas (38.4 percent, the largest increase since October 2005).

By Harlan Green, Special to VOICE / July 11, 2022


OME INFLATION IS GOOD FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH, but inflation is a danger when the majority of consumers can only afford to consume basic necessities. That hasn’t happened yet, with consumer spending still at post-pandemic levels. The annual inflation rate in the U.S. accelerated to 9.1 percent in June of 2022, the highest since November of 1981, from 8.6 percent in May and above market forecasts of 8.8 percent.

Consumer spending may have peaked, but has yet to decline substantially in May. It is still up 7.2 percent overall, 5.2 percent YoY without more volatile food and energy prices per the FRED graph, which is causing most of the current inflationary spike.

Economic VOICE

By Harlan Green

It was mainly energy prices that rose 41.6 percent, the most since April 1980, boosted by gasoline (59.9 percent), fuel oil (98.5 percent), electricity (13.7 percent, the largest increase since April 2006), and

So, how long can this surge in prices last, given the Ukraine war, China’s COVID problems, and ongoing pandemic restrictions?


inflation) is we are in a race to recover from COVID-19 while a European war is raging. The U.S. economy has slowed from a warp speed of 100 mph as it shot out of the pandemic to 60 mph, as it returns to a more normal growth mode. Gas and oil prices are moderating because most of the oil-producing companies and countries have increased production for the simple reason that they are making record profits.

President Joe Biden on Wednesday said in a statement that while a “headline inflation reading is unacceptably high, it is also out-of-date,” as he reacted to a report showing a year-over-year rise of 9.1 percent for the consumer price index in June. “Today’s data does not reflect the full impact of nearly 30 days of decreases in gas prices, that have reduced the price at the pump by about 40 cents since mid-June.” The fact that inflation may soften sometime in the future is a tough sell and hard for consumers to believe. What should we believe about the danger of longer-term inflation?

And consumers will slowly cut back on spending as prices continue to rise across the board. Friday’s retail sales figures for June will tell us how much consumers are cutting back. If spending is slowing, perhaps the Fed will also slow down their need to boost rates.

Meet a Fellow


has been for the last 20 years - never once did I feel the need to ask myself why Beethoven’s 5th Symphony is still being performed, like all great music it carries a timeless quality that resonates with all of us whether we hear it for the first or thousandth time!

Daniel Joseph

IEWING THE CREATION OF MUSIC AS ESSENTIAL AS BREATHING, Music Academy violin fellow Daniel Joseph finds fullfillment in connecting with others through performances. Currently earning a bachelor’s degree at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Joseph is thrilled to spend time with experienced artists and enjoy Santa Barbara’s scenery.

VOICE: What first inspired you, and continues to inspire you, to pursue music?

when Dad would sing to me, I would sit there listening carefully, as still as a millpond with an unusually concentrated look on my face, like I was silently critiquing his singing. Perhaps my earliest memory must have been from the ages of three to four during a family trip to Birmingham to see Gustav Holst’s The Planets, conducted by Sakari Oramo and performed by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra... I remember feeling in a state of complete ecstasy after the final thunderous roar of Mars, unbeknownst to me, my excitement was such the little young red-hair runt that I was shouted “WOW!” in the middle of some 2,000 well-mannered concert goers...

Daniel Joseph: I don’t ever remember having that memorable moment in my life where I knew or decided to make music a priority in my life! Music has been with me for longer than my memory has - my parents occasionally remind me that I was the weird baby who,

For the next ten to 12 years I raided every classical CD collection my Dad owned and I listened to everything I possibly could... What I think still inspires me today to pick up and get going with these self-inflicted gruelling practice regimes has been the same thing that

Joseph’s next performance will be Music Academy’s Violin Masterclass led by Martin Beaver on Tuesday, July 26th at 1:30pm located in Hahn & Lehmann Hall. He took a moment to share his experiences with VOICE readers:

Nowadays I have the additional bonus of having been through school and university...I know that there is more out there waiting to be found and unearthed... VOICE: What do you most enjoy about studying at Music Academy?

Joseph: Aside from the music-making? There are so many wonderful things about the Music Academy experience... They strike a very healthy and important medium between working and relaxing... Here we get to take in the breeze of ocean air mixed with sun ripened plant life in the hour or so between work periods, and for the lucky few of us who have a longer time off in the afternoon may be found scattered over Butterfly Beach, hiking, or exploring Downtown! Time off is always a neglected but essential part of our day, as it allows us time to live and connect with ourselves, especially after an exhausting week... With all credit to our superhuman administration team, I don’t think it’s possible to advertise some of the things that distinguishes the Music Academy experience. For instance, I knew that New York Phil concertmaster Glenn Dicterow was on the faculty but never imagined I would find myself eating great Mexican food Downtown with him... or that in my first week with the Academy Festival Orchestra I would

SB Library Foundation Welcomes New Board Members and Leaders


HREE NEW BOARD MEMBERS have joined the Santa Barbara Public Library Foundation, supporting SBPL’s community programming, ongoing and upcoming improvement projects, and ensuring all community members have access to lifelong learning. SBPLF’s 2022-2023 officers include Jim Jackson, Board President; Anna Alldredge, Vice President; Jim Sterne Secretary; and Brooke McDermott, Treasurer. www.sblibraryfoundation.org

New Board President Jim Jackson also recognized the board members terming off this year, Emily Engel, Bob Fulmer, Linda Lorenzen, and his predecessor, Anne Howard. “We are beyond grateful for all Anne has brought to the Santa Barbara Public Library Foundation and the milestones we have achieved under her leadership,” said Jackson. “Anne joined the Foundation Board following the Children’s Library Campaign. She helped the Santa Barbara Public Library Foundation celebrate the Library’s Centennial in 2017, strengthen the board, hire a new Foundation Director, develop SB Reads program support, and launch and achieve a successful Library Plaza Campaign.” DAVID MCFADDEN was born and raised in Santa Barbara. McFadden returned to Santa Barbara to continue work with the same DC-based radiology practice he joined in 2003, now focused on critical care via telemedicine. He is a member of the SBPLF’s Library Plaza Campaign’s Major Gifts Committee. David McFadden

July 22, 2022 be sat next to the phenomenal Jorja Fleezanis, who selflessly and tirelessly gives all her effort in building up our powerhouse string section. Additionally, though we were well versed about the compeer programme prior to arrival, there is an understated pleasure...that we have this incredible opportunity to spend some quality time in the company of some of the most generous people I’ve met. It really gives a priceless dose of perspective on how our music deeply affects those who choose to come to listen to us... VOICE: What do you find fulfilling about performing?

Joseph: It’s often a good point of reflection, to think about the eternal quality of performing music, as well as being a healthy deterrent from anything becoming mundane and routine. I suppose in many ways this could be an extension of what continues to inspire me in that music for me is just as much a part of what keeps me alive as breathing, eating and drinking does... I think the most fulfilling thing must be the reminder of a thought process that all musicians have at some point, which is why didn’t we choose a normal 9-5pm job with a tasty paycheck and sociable working hours? For me there’s no immediate answer, until I hear the Contrabass section start the juicy Eb’s in the opening of Das Rheingold. Then again, on a more personal level, given that every show we do is to thousands upon thousands of listeners, there may be just one person... have their life changed from that moment on... That, I think, is one of the many reasons our practice becomes worth it!

ShelterBox USA Launches “Stock the Box” Campaign to Prepare for Intensifying Storms


O ENSURE ITS WAREHOUSES ARE STOCKED AND PREPARED TO PROVIDE LIFESAVING AID and supplies to victims of weather-driven disasters, global disaster relief organization ShelterBox USA has launched its “Stock the Box” campaign. Previously, ShelterBox USA has responded to over 60 weather-driven disasters, distributing emergency shelter, solar lanterns, water carriers and filters, thermal blankets, and more to people who have lost their homes. This initiative is made all the more important given the anticipation of more intense hurricanes, typhoons, and cyclones in the wake of climate change. According to the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre, over the past five years, over 11.2 million people have been displaced annually by storms. “Climate change is making life-threatening storms even more dangerous, and we need to be prepared,” said Kerri Murray, President of ShelterBox USA, which is based in Santa Barbara. “‘Stock the Box’ helps us replenish our supplies prepositioned around the world so we can respond when disaster strikes. The next disaster is not a matter of if, but when.” “Stock the Box” arrives as the Atlantic hurricane season is forecasted to be above average for the seventh straight year, and ShelterBox’s recent deployment of an assessment team to Bangladesh following flooding that displaced over nine million people.

Peter Ginsberg

RAISSA SMOROL brings over 25 years of fundraising and donor relations experience to her role as Senior Director, Leadership Giving at the Center for Reproductive Rights. Prior to joining the Center, she served as Chief Development Officer at the Santa Barbara City College Foundation.

Through “Stock the Box,” campaign supporters can donate materials to individuals in need. For $1,000, community members can donate an entire ShelterBox, including everything a family would need after losing their home and possessions. Supporters can also donate individual items, such as a family tent ($500), cooking set ($250), mosquito net ($40), solar light ($30), and more. www.ShelterBoxUSA.org/StocktheBox

Tree-of-the-Month, July 2022:

Dragon Tree Dracaena draco


By David Gress / Special to VOICE

Photos by David Gress

HE DRAGON TREE is unlike any other tree that you might see - strikingly exotic and otherworldly in appearance. Formerly planted as a remarkable “must-have” specimen on the grounds of large estates, botanical gardens, and parks, it has found new popularity in today’s landscapes, because of its tolerance of extreme heat and drought and its low-maintenance needs. It was first imported into the Santa Barbara area in the late 1800’s. Two stately specimens that were planted here during that time still stand in local private gardens; these have been formally recognized as the largest of the species in California! Because it has been enjoyed all over the world in climates that are appropriate for it, the Dragon Tree received the Royal Horticultural Dragon Tree flowers Society’s prestigious Award of Garden Merit in 2002. The Dragon Tree is an evergreen that grows slowly to maturity. It will require considerable patience on the part of the owner. However, such patience will be rewarded, as it can become an impressive, massive, Dragon Tree fruit tree. Interestingly, it will sprout from seed and develop for five to ten years as simply a single thin trunk (five- to eight-feet in height). From the top of the trunk (the epical meristem), a short tuft or rosette of bluish-green, sword-shaped, leaves (up to two-feet long by 1½ inch wide) will grow. Only after that initial growth period is over will the tree show its first display of flowers. When the flowers go to seed, the leaves drop off and the epical meristem dies. Following that, two branches will emerge, Y-shaped, from under the bark on either side of the old epical meristem. These sausage-shaped branches will each develop their own leaf tufts at their own epical meristems. This curious growth pattern continues for the life of the tree, slowly resulting in an increasingly Y-branched form - an amazingly intricate pattern of stout branches that holds up the tree’s umbrella-like canopy.

Marcia Burtt Gallery


By Kerry Methner, PhD / VOICE

LONG THEIR WAY, the artists represented by the Marcia Burtt Gallery have refined their voices, styles, and viewpoints. In Sea & Summit the fruits of that maturity of perspective, seen through their developed eyes, waits for viewers to pause and connect. Made up of 30 or so paintings and photographs, the exhibition is on view through August 14th for in-person and online viewing. Taking in the exhibit on a warm Sunday afternoon, the pieces individually shimmer with vibrant color or quietly stand witness to the coast and the mountains’ essence. Light. Intensity. Beauty. Peace. Strength. Colors stand out and then blend into new hues as the freedom afforded by abstraction makes room for viewers to fill in the blanks on their own. “A Sunday moment of zen,” the gallery’s social

media notes of the gallery setting. Yes... but it’s a busy zen as the work of 15 artists, most with two or more pieces, are L’eau Froide, acrylic, 36x36 in. by Patricia Doyle spaced at easy viewing height around the tall-ceilinged room that Burtt created from a quonset on Laguna Street, before the area was improving, some time back. Gallery Director Cynthia Stahl wrote of the exhibition in her poetic way, “Sublime ocean and coastal mountain views take center stage in these paintings and photographs by gallery artists.... Shoreline rocks emerge like teeth out of the sea, parodying peaks and bluffs that rise above the coast. Our artists contrast ridge lines with expanses of water below or let them meld into mist and fog. Clouds form radiant haloes behind the summits or sweep by in dark wind-whipped weather strips...” There’s something for most tastes. Patricia Doyle’s L’eau Froide, at three feet by three feet is a powerful expression of light on the water and land. Its broad brush strokes define bluffs, their reflections, and distant oceanscape’s saturated color. L’eau Froide hangs at the far end of the gallery. Before arriving in front of Doyle’s work, Marilee Bougainvillea Wave, acrylic, 20x18 in. by Marcia Burtt Krause’s watercolor, East Mountain Drive, delivers a mountain vista and ocean view, with the merest suggestion of shapes and sparse detail. The Gallery is open Thu-Su 1-5 pm. Burtt, herself, has pieces dotting the walls. From The exhibition is also online transparent turquoise blues to the luscious deep at www.artlacuna.com magentas found in her Bougainvillea Wave, they each offer the freshness and natural immediacy that her work elicits. Among the many names art afficiondos will recognize, there is a photographer, Bill Dewey, who has spent decades photographing each of the Channel Islands. Matching the Sea & Summit theme perfectly, these rich images of the land across the Channel offer a sense of pristine quiet and expansivness - even the photo with a mare and her colt. Artists in the exhibition inclue: Marcia Burtt, Marilee Krause, Anne Ward, Ian Roberts, Ann Lofquist, Patricia Doyle, Robert Abbott, Robert Zaca, Marilyn Turtz, Erling Sjovold, Susan Petty, Randall David North Side, Santa Cruz Island, Santa Rosa Island, photograph, 6x9 in. by Bill Dewey Tipton, Jeff Yeomans, and Bill Dewey.

Restoring the Great Arch

Santa Barbara Courthouse Legacy Foundation The Santa Barbara Courthouse is one of the most distinctive courthouses in America and its Great Arch is in need of restoration. Completed in 1929, in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, the building is a functioning courthouse, an iconic symbol of the Spanish heritage of Santa Barbara, a focal point for community festivals, concerts, weddings, and public events, and a landmark attraction for nationwide and international tourism. Because of this need, the Courthouse Legacy Foundation is now seeking financial support for an ongoing project to restore the Great Arch entrance into the Courthouse and its Sunken Gardens. Doorways under the Arch lead to the Courthouse lobby, active courtrooms, County offices, the famed Mural Room, and the Clock Tower. The Great Arch and Clock Tower are the most photographed features of the building. Over the years, the Great Arch has suffered weathering and

deterioration. A Comprehensive Conditions assessment of the Courthouse identified a number of restoration requirements for the Arch. Cracks and erosion in the sandstone masonry and cast-stone carvings and sculptures, have led to water infiltration and damage to stone and cast-stone features on the Arch. A previous attempt, at an unknown time in the past, to protect the stone and castings with a clear coating, has actually resulted in discoloration and further erosion of these features. There is also a potential danger that some pieces may fall onto public spaces. The ultimate goal of this project is to completely restore the Arch to its distinctive appearance as the signature entrance to a designated National Historic Landmark building and an iconic symbol of the Spanish heritage and identity of the city of Santa Barbara. In 2020 EverGreene Architectural Arts, Inc. performed the

sophisticated work of removing the degraded stone coating that was causing deterioration of the Great Arch. They conducted a multi-step analysis for best methods of treatment and followed Federal standards for preserving a National Historic Landmark. Their Phase I cleaning activity was completed on time and on budget for $175,000. The CLF is now focused on raising funds to begin Phase II of the conservation effort, which will address damage to the sandstone blocks, failed mortar joints, and loss of ornamental stone features on the Great Arch.

Legacy Foundation In 2004, a small group of committed citizens came together and formed the Santa Barbara Courthouse Legacy Foundation (CLF), dedicated to the conservation and restoration of this magnificent building for generations to come. The CLF ensures all conservation, restoration, and restoration projects meet federally mandated standards for a National Historic Landmark.
