“I’ve learned that crisis is an incredible opportunity to evolve.” – Marin Alsop Home Choir, and Alsop herself. Below enjoy Alsop’s answers to a few questions about her experiences. How have you observed that the industry adapting to the circumstances surrounding the pandemic has created opportunities for permanent changes in the field?

The pandemic jump-started many initiatives that were having trouble getting traction. For professional orchestras, there was an inherent resistance to anything digital. When I am backstage and hear the announcement, “Photographs and recordings are strictly prohibited,” I am longing for someone to say instead, “Please, take out your cell phones and promote us on your social media networks.” Maybe we haven’t quite arrived at that place, but we’ve come leaps and bounds, and I think if the pandemic hadn’t happened that progress would not have ensued. Some factions of the industry will want to go back to being what they were. But I’ve learned that crisis is an incredible opportunity to evolve. My hope for many organizations is that they try to evolve their institutions and their approaches in a 21st century way. As the OrchKids Founder of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, in addition to your new role as Music Director Laureate, you have offered music education to the city’s most disadvantaged youth.

Creating opportunities for children is the greatest privilege there is. We’re able to see them blossom into their own potential. Learning a musical instrument is not just about becoming a musician. You learn how to motivate yourself, budget your time, be self-disciplined. These skills and experiences enable them to see the future full of possibilities. Some of these students have decided to go to music school, to be music educators or focus on music

By Kate Oberjat IFTING A GLOBAL BATON for the Music Academy of the West, Marin Alsop, an internationally renowned conductor, will lead the Academy Chamber Orchestra in a Community Concert on Saturday, August 7th, with 2pm and 7:30pm concerts at the historic Granada Theatre. All tickets will be $10. Alsop is the first woman to serve as the head of a major orchestra in the United States, South America, Austria, and Britain. The New York Times has described her as “a formidable musician and a powerful communicator” but also “a conductor with a vision.” Alsop will lead the Community Concert, which will perform Joan Tower’s Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman; Variaciones Concertantes by Alberto Ginastera; and Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 in A Major, Op 92. In collaboration with YouTube and Google Arts & Culture, Alsop spearheaded the “Global Ode to Joy” (GOTJ), a crowd-sourced video project to celebrate Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. Together with Germany’s official Beethoven anniversary campaign and the leading arts organizations of five continents, Alsop invited the global community to share the call for tolerance, unity, and joy of the composer’s Ninth Symphony in videos tagged #GlobalOdeToJoy. The project culminated in December 2020, the month of Beethoven’s birth, with a grand video finale: a GOTJ highlight reel, set to a performance of the Ode to Joy anchored by the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony, the international Stay-at-

management or performance. Many of them are the first in their families to go to college. It’s transformed their lives, the lives of their families, and the community they inhabit. It’s certainly transformed my life. It’s easily the thing I’m the proudest of. As the first woman conductor in many orchestras and platforms, you have paved the way for other women globally. What inspired you to launch the Taki Alsop Conducting Fellowship for women in 2002?

As my career grew, I assumed there would be more and more women joining me, but 20 years later there is still only a handful of us. I founded the fellowship in order to give women the opportunity to experiment, and particularly to fail. You learn a lot more from failing than succeeding. The fellowship has had an impact on women in the field, but nothing close to what has happened since the #metoo movement. It changed the landscape totally and forced the hands of many institutions to hire women and people of color. This is the new normal. I believe that there’s room for everyone in music and for everyone to make a difference in the world. I don’t want to keep the peephole small. I want to open the doors wide. n

EVANTANDO UNA BATUTA GLOBAL para la Music Academy of the West, Marin Alsop, una directora de renombre internacional, dirigirá a la Orquesta de Cámara de la Academia en un Concierto Comunitario el sábado, 7 de agosto, con conciertos a las 2pm y 7:30pm en el histórico Teatro Granada. Todos los boletos costarán $10. Alsop es la primera mujer que se desempeña como directora de una orquesta importante en los Estados Unidos, América del Sur, Austria y Gran Bretaña. El New York Times la ha descrito como “un formidable músico y una poderosa comunicadora,” pero también como “una directora con una visión.” Alsop dirigirá el Concierto

Comunitario, que interpretará Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman de Joan Tower; Variaciones Concertantes de Alberto Ginastera; y la Symphony No. 7 in A Major, Op 92 de Ludwig Van Beethoven. En colaboración con YouTube y Google Arts & Culture, Alsop encabezó “Global Ode to Joy” (GOTJ), un proyecto de video de colaboración colectiva para celebrar el 250 aniversario de Beethoven. Junto con la campaña oficial del aniversario de Beethoven de Alemania y las principales organizaciones artísticas de los cinco continentes, Alsop invitó a la comunidad mundial a compartir el llamado a la tolerancia, la unidad y la alegría de la Novena Sinfonía del compositor en videos etiquetados como #GlobalOdeToJoy. El proyecto culminó en diciembre de 2020, el mes del nacimiento de Beethoven, con un gran final de video: un carrete destacado de GOTJ, ambientado en una interpretación de la Oda a la alegría presentada por la ORF Vienna Radio Symphony, el coro internacional Stay-at-Home, y la propia Alsop. A continuación, disfruta de las respuestas de Alsop a algunas preguntas sobre sus experiencias.

además de tu nuevo papel como Directora Musical Laureada, has ofrecido educación musical a los jóvenes más desfavorecidos de la ciudad.

¿Cómo has observado la adaptación de la industria a las circunstancias que rodearon la pandemia ha creado oportunidades para cambios permanentes en el campo?

A medida que mi carrera crecía, asumí que más y más mujeres se unirían a mí, pero 20 años después todavía quedamos solo un puñado de nosotras. Fundé la confraternidad para darles a las mujeres la oportunidad de experimentar y, en particular, de fracasar. Se aprende mucho más fracasando que triunfando. La beca ha tenido un impacto en las mujeres en el campo, pero nada parecido a lo que ha sucedido desde el movimiento #metoo. Cambió el panorama totalmente y obligó a muchas instituciones a contratar mujeres y personas de color. Esta es la nueva normalidad. Creo que hay espacio para todos en la música y para que todos marquen la diferencia en el mundo. No quiero que la mirilla sea pequeña. Quiero abrir las puertas de par en par. n

La pandemia impulsó muchas iniciativas que estaban teniendo problemas para conseguir tracción. Para las orquestas profesionales, existía una resistencia inherente a todo lo digital. Cuando estoy detrás del escenario y escucho el anuncio, “Las fotografías y grabaciones están estrictamente prohibidas,” anhelo que alguien diga en su lugar, “Por favor, saquen sus teléfonos celulares y promociónennos en sus redes sociales.” Tal vez no hemos llegado a ese lugar, pero hemos avanzado a pasos agigantados, y creo que si la pandemia no hubiera sucedido, el progreso no se habría producido. Algunas facciones de la industria querrán volver a ser lo que eran. Pero he aprendido que la crisis es una oportunidad increíble para evolucionar. Mi esperanza para muchas organizaciones es que intenten hacer evolucionar sus instituciones y sus enfoques al estilo del siglo XXI. Como Fundador de OrchKids de la Orquesta Sinfónica de Baltimore,

Crear oportunidades para los niños es el mayor privilegio que existe. Podemos verlos florecer en su propio potencial. Aprender un instrumento musical no se trata solo de convertirse en músico. Aprendes a motivarte, a manejar tu tiempo, a ser auto disciplinado. Estas habilidades y experiencias les permiten ver el futuro lleno de posibilidades. Algunos de estos estudiantes han decidido ir a la escuela de música, ser profesores de música o enfocarse en la gestión musical o la interpretación. Muchos de ellos son los primeros en sus familias en ir a la universidad. Ha transformado sus vidas, las vidas de sus familias y la comunidad que habitan. Ciertamente ha transformado mi vida. Es fácilmente lo que más me enorgullece. Como primera mujer conductora en muchas orquestas y plataformas, has allanado el camino para otras mujeres en todo el mundo. ¿Qué te inspiró a lanzar la beca de dirección Taki Alsop para mujeres en 2002?

“Aprendí que la crisis es una oportunidad increíble para evolucionar.” – Marin Alsop

Salud Carbajal Reintroduces Home For the Brave Act

I

N A BIPARTISAN EFFORT TO SUPPORT VETERANS, Representative Salud Carbajal (D-CA-24) reintroduced the Home For the Brave Act of 2021 along with Representative Lloyd Smucker (R-PA-11) earlier this month. If passed, this bill will exempt veterans’ VA disability benefits from being counted toward their total incomes when deciding upon their eligibility for housing assistance programs through the Department of Housing and Urban Development. “It is wrong to deny veterans access to housing assistance programs due to disability benefits they receive for service-related injury or illness,” said Representative Carbajal. “I am glad to work across the aisle on this legislation to assist our veterans experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity on the Central Coast and across the country. They stepped up to defend our nation and now Congress must step up for them by ending this egregious housing discrimination against our disabled veterans.” Currently, financial benefits for service-connected disabilities are counted as income when it is determined if an individual is eligible for HUD housing assistance programs. Accordingly, many veterans do not qualify due to their benefits making them rank at a higher income level. The bill has earned the endorsement of a number of organizations, including the National Coalition for the Homeless, Disabled American Veterans, Military Officers Association of America, Paralyzed Veterans of America, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, the American Legion, and Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Contactless Payment Options Introduced on Clean Air Express and Select MTD Buses

I

N AN INNOVATIVE MOVE TOWARD FASTER, EASIER PAYMENTS for public transportation, contactless payment options have been introduced on Clean Air Express buses and select Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District buses. This system is now available through a six month demonstration with the California Integrated Travel Project, and offers passengers the chance to pay with contactless credit, debit, or prepaid cards and mobile wallets on smart devices. “We are excited to introduce this convenient payment option for our riders,” said Jerry Estrada, general manager of Santa Barbara MTD. “We’re piloting this technology on ten of our buses, serving Lines 12x and 24x. This means you’ll be able to get to UCSB, Downtown Santa Barbara, Camino Real Marketplace, and Old Town Goleta with a simple tap of a card or device.” This contactless payment system is the first to be offered by public transit providers in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo Counties. Participating Clean Air Express and Santa Barbara MTD buses will have contactless payment readers in the front, where passengers will be able to pay their fare by tapping either a card or mobile payment option to the screen. Accepted payment options include Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards that have tap-to-pay abilities, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, and Fitbit Pay. No registration or account setup is required to use this system, however there will be an online portal for customers who would like a receipt or to check their recent payments. Physical bus fare passes and cash payments will still be accepted. For more information, vist www.sbmtd.gov/TaptoRide Photo courtesy of www.sbmtd.gov

SB County EMS Agency Distributes Helmets and Car Seats to Families in Need

T

O SUPPORT LOCAL CHILDRENS’ SAFETY, the Santa Barbara County Emergency Medical Services Agency has teamed up with local organizations to distribute helmets and car seats to local families in need. Made possible through a California Department of Public Health Kids’ Plates grant, the EMS Agency has been provided with a total of 105 helmets and 32 convertible car seats. “Public access and education are integral strategies in our continued commitment to our community’s safety,” shared Nick Clay, Director for the County EMS Agency. “We are excited to team up with state and local partners to bring this commitment to reality.” It is estimated that there are 240,000 emergency room visits for children aged 19 and under each year for bicycle-related injuries. Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention have reported that an estimated 59 percent of car seats are misused in a way that could reduce their effectiveness. This makes the EMS Agency’s actions all the more important for local safety. Car seats and installation completed by Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will be available at no cost to those families that qualify across Santa Barbara County. These technicians will also give parents education on proper car seat use and adjustment. All of this is due to collaboration with Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Safe Kids, Montecito Fire Department, Lompoc Fire Department, and the County Maternal, Child & Adolescent Health Program. The available helmets are being distributed via bike camps organized by SBBIKE + COAST. Each helmet is properly sized and fitted for the receiving child’s head by a trained professional.

New band Tableaux Sonique, with Shelly Rudolph and Joe Woodard, to debut at the Lobero

A

part of the “Zach Gill and Friends” concert on Saturday, July 31st

NEW ORIGINAL MUSIC PROJECT, Tableaux Sonique, featuring Portland-based singersongwriter Shelly Rudolph and Santa Barbara guitarist-songwriter Joe Woodard, will make its debut at the Lobero Theatre on Saturday, July 31st, at 6:30pm. The evening, officially dubbed “Zach Gill and Friends,” runs from 6 to 10pm and is a free-tothe-public celebration in the historic and beloved Lobero, soon to fling its doors open to live music as (formerly) usual. Born in the heat and restless heart of the pandemic, in September 2020, Tableaux Sonique brings together old musical comrades, with some fresh ideas about how to mix assorted genres into a savory, sensual concoction. Among the ingredients are worldly detours, almost-blues, shades of R&B, jazz spice rack, poetic pop, and soulful etceteras, with images on the side. The invitation from the Lobero and Gill (of ALO, Jack Johnson band and Zach Gill fame) to join the Lobero night, along with Teka, Spencer the Gardener, Volts Per Octave, and others was “a perfect opportunity.” The band will be joined by drummer Austin Beede and bassist Randy Tico. www.lobero.org/events/an-evening-with-zach-gill-and-special-guests/

Community News California To Require State Employees and Health Care Workers Be Vaccinated or Tested Weekly

C

ALIFORNIA STATE EMPLOYEES AND HEALTH CARE WORKERS will be required to show proof of vaccination or be tested weekly, beginning August 2nd. California will be the first state in the nation with this precaution due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All local governments and businesses have been encouraged to adopt similar measures. “We are now dealing with a pandemic of the unvaccinated, and it’s going to take renewed efforts to protect Californians from the dangerous Delta variant,”

said Governor Gavin Newsom. “As the state’s largest employer, we are leading by example and requiring all state and health care workers to show proof of vaccination or be tested regularly, and we are encouraging local governments and businesses to do the same. Vaccines are safe – they protect our family, those who truly can’t get vaccinated, our children, and our economy. Vaccines are the way we end this pandemic.” As of last week, California’s statewide case rate more than quadrupled from a low in May of 1.9 cases/100,000/day to at least

9.5 cases/100,000. Unvaccinated workers will be subject to at least weekly COVID-19 testing and will be required to wear appropriate PPE. This requirement also applies to high-risk congregate settings like adult and senior residential facilities, homeless shelters, and jails. These steps will help protect vulnerable patients and residents. The new policy for state workers will take effect August 2nd and testing will be phased in over the next few weeks. The new policy for health care workers and congregate facilities will take effect on

August 9th, and health care facilities will have until August 23rd to come into full compliance. Despite California leading the nation in vaccinations, with more than 44 million doses administered and 75 percent of the eligible population having received at least one dose, the state is seeing increasing numbers of people who refused to get the vaccine being admitted to the ICU and dying. This increase is heavily due to the Delta variant, which is more contagious and kills people faster.

EPORTING AN UNAUDITED NET INCOME OF $6,132,000 ($1.19 per share), American Riviera Bank released a report for the first six months of 2021. This income represents a 124 percent increase in net revenues from the $2,736,000 ($0.54 per share) earned in the same reporting period in the prior year. “We are pleased as our community recovers from the pandemic to put deposits to work funding loans to local businesses and real estate projects,” commented Jeff DeVine, President and Chief Executive Officer. In 2021, the Bank achieved an annualized return on average assets of 1.20 percent and return on average equity of 14.26 percent Unaudited net income was $3,572,000 ($0.70 per share) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to the $1,565,000 ($0.31 per share) earned in the same reporting period in the prior year. Net income in the second quarter of 2021 was positively impacted by a $751,000 loan interest recovery and accelerated recognition of Paycheck Protection Program fee income upon loan forgiveness by the Small Business Administration. “The Bank has been working closely with our clients to process and obtain prompt forgiveness decisions from the SBA, which has contributed to strong PPP fee income recognition this year,” continued DeVine. “We will continue to make significant investments in people, products and technology to support our clients and the communities of the Central Coast.” Core loans, excluding SBA PPP loans, have grown 14 percent or $86 million over the last year since June 30, 2020. Year to date, core loans excluding PPP loans have grown nine percent or $60 million since December 31, 2020. PPP loans totaled $76 million at June 30, 2021, with $78 million processed by the Bank and approved for forgiveness by the SBA during the six months ended June 30, 2021. The Bank maintained strong credit quality with no other real estate owned, no loans 90 days or more past due, and only $3.4 million or 0.48 percent of total loans excluding PPP on non-accrual status, which are well supported by collateral. American Riviera Bank continues to experience deposit growth with a 33 percent or $258 million increase in total deposits over the last year since June 30, 2020. Noninterest bearing demand deposits increased 30 percent or $100 million since June 30, 2020. Deposit inflows from our clients have been the driving factor in the total assets of the Bank increasing $248 million since June 30, 2020 to a total of $1.15 billion at June 30, 2021. As of June 30, 2021, American Riviera Bank continues to be well capitalized with a Tier 1 Capital Ratio of eleven percent (well above the regulatory guideline of eight percent for well capitalized institutions). The tangible book value per share of American Riviera Bank common stock was $16.72 at June 30, 2021.

Eling’s Park to Receive Grant for Mountain Bike Trails

I

NFRASTRUCTURE GRANTS FOR MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS will be going to Eling’s Park and Larsen Meadow, according to an announcement made by the Trek Foundation, which was newly formed to provide financial support to public mountain bike trail development and bicycle infrastructure projects. “This world needs more people to ride bikes, and if that’s going to happen, they need great places for bikes that are safe and close to home,” said Trek Bicycle President, John Burke. “Our commitment to advocacy and to changing the world through cycling is long standing. The Trek Foundation will accelerate this commitment to invest in great places to ride and help build a future where everybody has access to experience the difference bicycles can make.” While The Trek Foundation will fund projects across the U.S., at its inception, it is funding these initial projects: Trek Trails at Eling’s Park, located just west of downtown Santa Barbara on Las Positas Road. Eling’s Park is a 230-acre, privately funded non-profit park that contains—in addition to many other amenities—public mountain bike trails. The Trek Foundation’s contribution will help expand, restore, and preserve the park’s nine miles of trails that provide easy, free, access for riders across a wide spectrum of skill and experience levels. Trek Trails at Larsen Meadow, located in Los Padres National Forest in the Santa Ynez mountains, the Larsen Meadow trails were destroyed by the Whittier wildfire of 2017. The Trek Foundation’s contribution will rebuild ten miles of mountain bike trails and help preserve 250 acres that serve the community as a place where over 10,000 children visit every year to learn about natural sciences and experience the outdoors. Trek Bicycle established The Trek Foundation to fund cycling infrastructure projects and help preserve land from development through the establishment of publicly accessible mountain bike trails. The Trek Foundation is actively looking for more locations. For more information: www.trekbikes.com/us/en_US/trek-foundation/

Feeling anxious, fatigued, depressed, or just experiencing isolation challenges?

Hypnosis can help.

Reaching into the depths of our unconscious mind, we are able to find the resources needed to remain calm, feel inner peace, and even find joy in the midst of the chaos in our lives and the world. In-person or on-line sessions.

Takács Quartet: Schubert never heard it so good! Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE

Dusinberre and Harumi Rhodes, cellist András Fejér, and violist Richard O’Neill - was hands down, the most breathtakingly exquisite interpretation of the work in my experience. PACKED HOUSE AT HAHN HALL on the Music Academy of the West campus Perfection in intonation, dynamic compass, style, and balance, not unexpected at the highest welcomed Takács Quartet back to Santa Barbara with cheers and applause last levels, was crowned by an overall interpretation of the work that was fresh, fascinating, Thursday, July 22nd after a long cerebral, and chock-o-block with color and COVID hiatus; the uproar, a kind imagery. Did I mention style? If compassion of communal shout-out of relief at the is a musical style, Takács gave Schubert’s return, sort-of, to normal. Two works were heartbreaking masterpiece one of the on the program, Schubert’s String Quartet in most moving and gentle interpretations in D Minor, D. 810, Death and the Maiden and memory. Brahms’ String Sextet No. 2 in G Major, Op. Technical prowess and ensemble bravura 36. Academy Fellows Keoni Bolding viola, abounded, as in the variations of the Andante and Chas Barnard cello, joined Takács for the con moto, second movement. Takács’ edgy Brahms. performance of the third movement, Scherzo: Personnel changes for string quartets Allegro molto, was honey. Every note, each are tricky. The sold-out house last Thursday exclamation, every mood change, perfectly anticipated the introduction of Takács honed, styled, and finished. The final Quartet’s newest member, violist Richard movement, Presto, with its thrilling coda, O’Neill. O’Neill has been a fixture on the gave the audience a collective case of the Music Academy faculty for some years and vapors, followed by roars of approval for a Takács Quartet with Violinists Edward Dusinberre and Harumi Rhodes, Cellist András Fejér, Academy has performed with Camerata Pacifica for stunning interpretive endeavor! Fellows Cellist Chas Barnard and Violist Keoni Bolding, and Violist Richard O’Neill many years here as well. O’Neill’s recent After a short stretch break, Academy career moves have been exciting. Not only has he just joined Takács Quartet, his recording of Fellows Bolding (viola) and Barnard (cello) joined Takács Quartet on stage for a fascinating American composer Christopher Theofanidis’ Concerto for Viola and Chamber Orchestra with performance of Brahms’ String Sextet No. 2 in G Major, Op. 36. In four movements, the work is the Albany Symphony, won this year’s Grammy for Best Classical Instrumental Solo. from 1864-65, the composer in his early thirties. Takács’ performance revealed the quirkiness Long story short, Richard O’Neill is one of the most dynamic and visually thrilling violists of the piece, with its interesting dissonances and experiments in harmonic movement, on the planet today. As the newest “color” in Takács’ quiver, O’Neill is one of four equal beginning with the passage for two violas that opens the work. Tweaked tonality in the third partners, not just now and again, but for years to come, performing hundreds of concerts as a movement, Adagio, and a very nearly Elgarian tune in the last movement, Poco Allegro, gave all member of one of the great string quartets of the world. six artists opportunity to relish making music again together for a live audience.

opened the program. Perhaps it was only me holding my breath before the fragile opening notes of the first movement, Allegro. The silence in the room anticipating those first notes - the initial aural test of Takács’ famous ensemble blend and interpretive integrity with their new violist - bespoke at very least, an intensely curious audience of serious Takács fans. Everyone in the room, especially the artists, knew what was expected, but didn’t know what to expect. Having seen performances of Death and the Maiden by many dozens of quartets over several decades myself, Thursday’s performance by the ensemble - violinists Edward Welcome Back!

people to pursue what they love.” Born and raised in Santa Barbara, 16 years-old Yturralde is T FOUR YEARS OLD, Ysabella Yturralde watched the entering her senior year at San Marcos High School, where she Junior Spirit of Fiesta dance in La Cumbre Plaza, utterly is a member of the Accelerated Academic Program enchanted with the performer’s graceful of Leadership and Enrichment (AAPLE movements. Immediately, she knew that she Academy). A believer in giving back, wanted to dance just like her. Within a year, Yturralde she volunteers with the Santa Barbara began studying flamenco with Linda Vega Dance Assistance League and acts as an Orca Studio, eventually working her way to becoming the Camp counselor. She also works to inspire 2015 Junior Spirit of Fiesta. Now, she has surpassed her budding young dancers by teaching childhood dreams in being named the 2021 Spirit of children aged three to seven at the Maria Fiesta. Bermudez Flamenco Arts Studio. “I just think it’s incredible that I have this “I like being able to be a part of other opportunity to be able to do what I love – and dance people’s journey, especially younger and perform and make people happy – and then also girls, because I used to be in their place,” know that I’m making a difference in the community,” Yturralde explained. shared Yturralde. “Which is something so special, that Even after dancing for eleven years, 2021 Spirit of Fiesta I am able to have this platform where I can be making Ysabella Yturralde Yturralde’s passion for flamenco continues other people happy, and hopefully inspiring other to grow. She appreciates the way dancing allows her to connect with rhythm and music, letting her express herself and her emotions. She also views it as a way to connect with her Spanish, Mexican, and Puerto Rican heritage, which aligns with the 2021 Old Spanish Days theme of “honoring our generations.” Contributing to Yturralde’s personal feelings is the opportunity to work with her “dance family,” made up of the individuals Yturralde has been dancing with for much of her flamenco journey. “The energy that we have when we’re dancing, whether we’re practicing or performing, it’s just a second home for me,” she shared. Now, as Spirit of Fiesta, Yturralde is happy to have all of her past Old Spanish Days experiences to inform her performances and engagement with the community. She fondly remembers her time as Junior Spirit of Fiesta, which helped her realize the importance not only of serving as a figure of encouragement for younger

dancers, but how the Spirits of Fiesta contribute to Old Spanish Days’ joyful atmosphere. It is this inherently happy environment that honors Mexican culture and history that remains one of her favorite parts of Fiesta. “I love how lively Santa Barbara becomes during the length of Fiesta,” she shared. “Everybody just comes together and celebrates, and wherever you go in Santa Barbara there’s music playing, there’s dancers performing, there’s food and food trucks, and little pop-up shops with fans and flowers and little dresses and trinkets that you can buy... It’s just so vibrant.” Yturralde added that these Fiesta traditions will hold even greater significance in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the last year, she has navigated both virtual and outdoor, socially-distanced flamenco classes, and was only able to perform once via livestream last year. Ultimately, these and other experiences have helped her develop newfound appreciation for in person events, a feeling which she feels the larger Santa Barbara community will share this Fiesta. “I think it reminds us of how important it is to really just appreciate what we have in the moment and not take anything for granted,” Yturralde added.

NE OF THE MOST ROMANTIC EVENINGS OF DANCE, MUSIC, AND FOOD WILL RETURN on Sunday, August 8th, when The Profant Foundation’s Fiesta Finale Gala is held, starting at 5:30pm at the historic El Paseo Restaurant. Continuing a Profant tradition, entertainment will include an “artwork that comes to life” not only with posed actors and performers, but with the audience itself. This year’s subject is a photo that includes the beloved Gil Rosas performing in 1960. He will be joining the Gala this year to recreate the photo. The central fountain has been removed and once again Theater-in-the-Round will resume at the iconic restaurant. This year’s Event Producer, Musette Profant, is coordinating a gourmet dinner, a costume contest, and dancing under the stars. Renowned flamenco performer Lakshmi “La Chimi” Basile will set the floor afire with Ricardo Chavez and his troupe. Six professional dancers from Arthur Murray Dance Studio Santa Barbara/Beverly Hills, a singer, a ballerina, and the Martinez Brothers will perform, and the SB Piano Brothers have a special surprise for their loyal fans. Now celebrating its 21st year as a non-profit organization, the Profant Foundation has given hundreds of scholarships to developing artists of all ages and has sponsored exhibits and performances for arts education. The Profant family joins in this year’s Old Spanish Days theme of “Honoring Our Generations” by hosting a celebration in the tradition of their grandparents and greatgrandparents. Nearly 100 years ago, the Profants began their involvement in the Santa Barbara cultural community by helping to launch Community Arts Music Association (CAMA), the Music Academy of the West, and Old Spanish Days. The next generations created a charitable organization in the spirit of generosity established by their father John E. Profant. Scholarships are made available through community support and proceeds from the annual Gala. For Fiesta Finale Gala information and reservations email: jeprofant@gmail.com or call (805) 450-2001.

T’S BEGINNING TO LOOK LIKE FIESTA here in Santa Barbara! The midsummer tradition of Old Spanish Days will be here soon. Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, with the lifting of State and County COVID restrictions, Fiesta will be returning to Santa Barbara with its century of Old Spanish Days traditions. After the trials of the last 15 plus months, locals and visitors from up and down the coast will definitely be ready to celebrate our city’s rich traditions, history, and culture. The Santa Barbara Yacht Club prides itself on joining the festivities with its annual Fiesta Cup Regatta intended as an introduction to Santa Barbara’s Old Spanish Days. Usually scheduled for the weekend before Fiesta week, the three day sailing event hosts a series of races for one-design boats. Walking past the Yacht Club, I had the opportunity to talk with Jane Watkins, the Den Mother and initiator of the Fiesta Cup Regatta standing at the registration table at theYacht Club entrance welcoming enthusiastic racers from up and down the State. “This is our 15th year hosting the Fiesta Cup!” stated Watkins proudly. “Years ago the sail policy committee agreed that this would be an ideal time to host a one-design off-shore race in advance of Fiesta Week as an opportunity for participants to stay in Santa Barbara for the Parade and other Fiesta activities.” This years’ one-design fleet (boats of same hull and sail size) include Harbor 20’s, J 70’s and 111’s, and Melges 24’s. One race was planned after Friday’s registration, although four races were scheduled on Saturday and Sunday. The Fiesta Cup is known in the racing community as a fun-loving regatta with lots of good camaraderie in a glorious setting. A big hearty ‘thank-you!’ to Jane Watkins for spearheading this popular regatta for all these many years! After 97 years Old Spanish Days in Santa Barbara remains a beloved tradition dedicated to honoring and preserving the city’s history, spirit, culture, heritage, and traditions. The annual five-day festival, called “Fiesta” by locals takes place from August 4th to 8th, this year’s theme is “Honoring our Generations.” The history, customs, and traditions of the American Indian, Spanish, Mexican, and early American settlers that comprise the rich cultural heritage of Santa Barbara are being celebrated through music, dance, and fun activities. Considering that the 2020 Fiesta was a no-show, amazingly this year’s Fiesta contains almost all of the traditional activities with one exception: the enormous and

complicated Fiesta Parade. Being the curious creature that I am, I contacted David Bolton, Old Spanish Days’ El Segundo Vice Presidente, for insight.“This has been one interesting year!” Bolton exclaimed. “After almost a two year break, planning for Fiesta wasn’t easy considering the changing uncertainties of the Coronavirus restrictions. Every avenue and countless meetings took place in an effort to re-vision Fiesta and to mount the benchmark Fiesta Parade.” He noted that with the closure of State Street, the committee discovered that other routes were impractical considering traffic access, parking, staging, and similar issues. During the year, planning for Fiesta was continually underway, but due to the constantly fluctuating County mandates nothing could be finalized. “Our world exploded on June 15th when the County gave us the go-ahead,” he recalled, “after which our activities could finally be publicized.” Just across the street from the harbor at the Carriage and Western Art Museum a pre-event, La Recepción del Presidente, will take place on August 1st, honoring this year’s La Presidenta Stephanie Petlow. The beautiful ceremony of La Fiesta Pequeña representing the spirit and traditions of our community on the steps of Old Mission Santa Barbara will officially begin Old Spanish Days celebrations on August 4th at 6:30pm, followed by a week long series. “As Vice President, I cannot thank our supporters enough for hanging in there with us! Without them none of this would be happening,” stated Bolton gratefully. How well I understand his words as they describe the spirit of giving and caring innate in the Santa Barbara community. ¡Viva la Fiesta!

Economic VOICE Can We Fix the Housing Shortage? Part II

E

By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

XISTING-HOME SALES INCREASED IN JUNE, snapping four consecutive months of declines, according to the National Association of REALTORS.® But it’s not enough to bridge the supply-demand gap, especially for those entry-level homebuyers in their thirties with families that have lower incomes and credit scores. Lenders haven’t reduced the very stringent credit standards in place since the Great Recession and busted housing bubble that would allow more first-time homebuyers to take advantage of record-low interest rates.

“Total existing-home sales (www.nar.realtor/existing-home-sales), completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, and co-ops, grew 1.4 percent from May to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.86 million in June. Sales climbed year-over-year, up 22.9 percent from a year ago (4.77 million in June 2020).” Will housing construction be able to bridge the huge gap between what is needed and what is available? Not in the near term, as there are too many labor and material shortages, say the homebuilders. Demand is so hot for housing with a limited supply that homes typically sold within 17 days (24 days one year ago), say the REALTORS in the NAR’s most recent Buyer Traffic Index. U.S. home builders started construction on homes at a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 1.64 million in June, representing a 6.3 percent increase from the previous month’s downwardly-revised figure, the U.S. Census Bureau reported this week. Compared with June 2020, housing starts were up 29 percent, though the year-over-year comparison is skewed somewhat by the effects of COVID-19. But that is nowhere near the two million residential units under construction in the mid-2000s, which brought on the housing bubble. But times are much different today, as housing construction almost ground to a halt from the housing bubble and Great Recession that followed. Population growth continued, however, so today’s builders are playing catchup. The June reading of 1.64 million starts is the number of housing units builders would begin if development kept this pace for the next twelve months, says the National Association of Home Builders. Within this overall number, single-family starts increased 4.2 percent to a 1.10 million seasonally adjusted annual rate. The multifamily sector, which includes apartment buildings and condos, increased 2.4 percent to a 474,000 pace.

credit borrowers before the Great Recession and housing bubble. REALTORS have proposed increasing the housing supply by creating or expanding tax credits, loans or grants for builders who renovate or build new housing in lowincome areas and who convert old malls and factories into homes. They also asked for incentives for cities to allow denser zoning, an approach that President Biden included in his infrastructure proposal, Reuters reported, as I wrote last week. But pressure has to be put on lenders to reduce their sky-high credit standards, as well, to allow those entry-level homebuyers with less available cash and slightly lower credit scores back into the housing market.

So how can we increase production? “We’ll need to do something dramatic to close this gap,” said Yun in a press release. And that gap is mainly affordability, as housing prices are increasing in double-digits, while real personal income has averaged some five percent per year. First-time buyers accounted for just 31 percent of sales in June, also even with May but down from 35 percent in June 2020. This is far below past history when 40 percent were first-timers. Part of the problem is that entry-level buyers tend to have lower credit scores when lenders have maintained very high credit score criteria, averaging above 750 at last report, whereas homebuyers with scores between 680-720 were considered good

Ph ot o

by Pri sc illa

BLAZING SUNSET OVER THE HISTORIC SANTA BARBARA MISSION STEPS precedes La Fiesta Pequeña, the invocation and “small fiesta” which officially begins Santa Barbara’s five day Old Spanish Days Fiesta celebration. This year that gathering and performance will take place August 4th. Dancing, singing, and colorful costumes framed by the moon lit Mission remind local residents of the city’s heritage stemming from Chumash, Mexican, Spanish, Native American, and immigrants from around the world as well as present joys of living in Santa Barbara. Among the highlights of the evening are performances by the Spirit of Fiesta, the Junior Spirit of Fiesta, and several Mariachi bands. Also, many local dance studios provide dramatic interpretations of Spanish classical, Flamenco dancing, and classical ballet. There will also be Mexican Folklórico dancers wearing vivid costumes from several areas in Mexico presenting regional dances. The 1926 Fiesta held a sunset service at the Mission. A year later, restoration of the Mission from the damage it received in the massive earthquake of 1925 was completed, leading to a celebration on Wednesday evening as a prelude to the opening of Fiesta. There was an procession along the Mission corridor up to the steps of the Mission followed by a program including addresses by dignitaries, music, and dancing. It ended with a reception. From 1927 to the present this tradition of an opening event on the Mission steps has continued. Festivities begin at 6:30pm on August 4th at the Santa Barbara Mission.

Fiesta Project! ‘Don’t Let the Parade Pass You By!’

Children’s costumes circa 1920s

IESTA LOVERS gathered at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum on Wednesday, July 14th, to celebrate the opening of 2021’s Project Fiesta - A History of Old Spanish Days. This year’s exhibition is dedicated to the festival’s all important El Desfile Histórico, or The Historical Parade. The exhibition, which will be on view through August 28th, offers a glimpse of the parade, during a year that, due to COVID-19 restrictions it won’t take place. Visitors will be entranced by ornate costumes dates back to the 1920s as well as more recent parade attire. There is also a multimedia presentation sharing some of the museum’s rich collection of videos and slides of past parades. It all celebrates “the pageantry, costume, and traditions of our city’s most cherished cultural festival through the Museum’s incredible collection of posters, clothing, ephemera, film, oral history, photos and more,” according to the Museum’s Deputy Directory Dacia Harwood. While the Museum was not able to invite the public in to enjoy its annual Del Museo events, the exhibition opening and several other smaller events have kept the tradition alive until Del Museo returns in 2022. This event drew nearly 200 interested visitors. The evening of the Fiesta Project Opening began with Flamenco Santa Barbara dancers, followed by a sponsor thank you by Harwood. OSD La Presidenta Stephanie Petlow also greeted participants when she introduced the Spirit and Junior Spirit of Fiesta who each performed for the crowd. After that, all of the dancers performed a traditional “Sevillianas” to crown the evening. If you haven’t picked up the Fiesta spirit yet, Harwood suggests, “visit our exhibition and feel the magic of the parade!”

Restoration/Revelation: The Conservation Treatment of the “Ghent Altarpiece”

T

Thursday, August 5 • 3 pm • Free With Bart J.C. Devolder, Chief Conservator, Princeton University Museum of Art

he Ghent Altarpiece (1432) by Jan and Hubert van Eyck is one of the most iconic works of Western art. It embodies the birth of new skills and vision. The artwork in itself is often claimed to be the most stolen painting in history. In spite of its many voyages, it is a miracle that until this day only one panel is missing. Still housed in Saint Bavo Cathedral, Ghent, Belgium, the site for which it was created, The Ghent Altarpiece or Mystic Lamb has undergone conservation and restoration treatment by the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIKIRPA, Brussels) since 2012. No one expected this restoration to turn into a revelation: the real Van Eyck had been hidden beneath overpaint for centuries! In his lecture, Bart Devolder shares remarkable discoveries from the first phase and second phase of the conservation and resortation process.
