Santa Barbara Symphony’s Red Violin Postponed to June 16 and 17
Santa Barbara, CA—The Red Violin previously scheduled for Saturday and Sunday January 20 and 21, has been postponed until June 16 and 17. Tickets purchased for the Red Violin with live orchestral accompaniment with the Santa Barbara Symphony and Guest Soloist Lara St. John are automatically transferred to the June dates. No action is required by current ticketholders.
Due to the limited access to and through the Santa Barbara area for our musicians and subscribers, and because of the emotional impact of the fire and flooding in the Ventura, Carpinteria, Summerland and Montecito areas, The Santa Barbara Symphony decided to postpone The Red Violin concerts this weekend. Instead the Symphony will offer a free and uplifting community concert with Artist-in-Residence Pablo Sáinz Villegas and a small accompanying orchestra on Thursday, January 18 at 7:30 at the Granada Theater. The free community benefit concert is presented in partnership with Montecito Bank & Trust and the Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts.
“Knowing this community the way the Santa Barbara Symphony does, it is clear that an intimate and uplifting performance that brings friends and families together is a better way to support our community this week,” said Kevin Marvin, Executive Director. “This will be an evening to come together to provide support and comfort in the way that the Santa Barbara Symphony does best, through the healing power of music.”
Ticket holders to the Red Violin will be contacted directly about the change in dates, and offered options if the change is inconvenient for them.
Details about any additional rescheduled performances due to limited access to and through the Santa Barbara area will be communicated as applicable.
