PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE © Patrick Price

Jeff and Josie DeVine

A cooler venue for this summer’s hot shows! It’s summertime at the Lobero, and I’m looking forward to spending some warm summer evenings on the new Esplanade, enjoying a cool drink before a great show. With performers like the Milk Carton Kids, Richard Thompson and Marshall Crenshaw & the Bottle Rockets on the lineup, the Lobero LIVE season is off to a great start. We are excited to welcome back the Music Academy of the West for performances by members of their Festival Orchestra, and Opera Scenes featuring some of the genre’s most beloved moments. And of course we can always count on the Sings Like Hell series to present “the greatest music you’ve never heard.”

Recent renovations to the theatre will make each of these summer performances even more enjoyable. The Esplanade gives us a safe and comfortable place to meet before the show with guests and friends. New seats provide better sight lines and more legroom. Enlarged restrooms

mean the intermissions run smoother with much shorter wait times, and a state-of-the-art air conditioning system keeps the climate cool when weather is warm, the house is full, and the audience is rocking out. The incredible entertainment doesn’t stop as summer winds down. Be sure to keep an eye on all that’s happening at the Lobero in the coming season. We will be announcing a new jazz series, presenting prominent female artists in “A Woman’s Voice” series, and much more. Local favorites like the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, CAMA Masterseries, Santa Barbara Revels, Santa Barbara Choral Society, and the Santa Barbara International Film Festival will throw in a few surprises along the way. Visit Lobero.com and sign up for our e-newsletter to be the first to hear about all the latest news and events. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy the more comfortable new Lobero and tonight’s performance. We’re glad you’re here and we look forward to having you back again soon.

Jeff DeVine, Lobero Board President


FOUNDATION MESSAGE e

Old Theatre, Young Stars The Lobero Theatre that we sit in today was built in 1924. Jose Lobero’s original Opera House dates back to 1873. For more than 140 years, this theatre has been the cultural heart of Santa Barbara. Being the oldest continuously operating theatre in California does not mean that we dwell in the past. Quite the contrary. The Lobero is all about the future: future artists, future audiences, and ensuring that this theatre will be here to serve another seven generations of Santa Barbarans. This year we will be placing a special focus on the next generation of performers. The Lobero stage is this amazing place where you can see music legend David Crosby one day, and summer Rock Camp students six-months later; Mikhail Baryshikov on a Friday followed by the young ballerinas of Gustafson Dance on Saturday.

It means so much to those children whose dreams include a life enriched by the arts. Together we will make those dreams a reality.
