ear Friends, Welcome to a new season of the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra. We have been listening to you, our loyal patrons, and have created a season we are sure you will enjoy. Our full-orchestra Lobero series, accentuated by the masterful conducting of Maestro Ohyama, continues to highlight the talented musicians that you have come to know over the years. In addition, we have created more intimate events held at historically significant locations to enhance the musical experience. We invite you to experience the music you love as though it’s the first time, drawing you close to the passion only a live performance by an extraordinary orchestra can provide. Listen and feel the connections being made: the musicians to each other, the conductor to the musicians, and ultimately you, the audience. Thank you for joining us this evening. We look forward to sharing a memorable night with you and hope you are inspired to invite a friend to join you for the next concert! Sincerely,

COVER: DAVID BAZEMORE; THIS PAGE: CAPTURED SPIRIT PHOTOGRAPHY.
