SANTA BARBARA’S LARGEST CLASSICAL MUSIC EVENT The Music Academy’s largest community event to date, the New York Philharmonic, will bring 7,000 attendees to Santa Barbara City College’s oceanside La Playa Stadium on July 31, 2017! The historic 70th Anniversary Community Concert will mark Alan Gilbert’s final appearance as New York Philharmonic Music Director. Maestro Gilbert will conduct Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, featuring Music Academy superstar alumna soprano Susanna Phillips (‘02,’03), tenor Joe Kaiser, and bass Morris Robinson as soloists in the work’s iconic Ode to Joy. The event will close with a stunning fireworks display over the ocean.

The year-round cosmetology program will begin its classes in the new building mid-summer 2017 with the incoming Freshman cohort.
SCHOOL OF EXTENDED LEARNING Santa Barbara City College is excited to embrace a major new initiative.
