Symphony Maestro Nir Kabaretti, Wife Welcome First Child

Baby Adam, born Aug. 24, weighs in at 8 pounds, 8 ounces

The Santa Barbara Symphony’s music and artistic director, Nir Kabaretti, and his wife, Gaja Hubbard-Kabaretti, welcomed their first child, Adam Kabaretti, into the world on Aug. 24. He weighed 8 pounds, 8 ounces.

“I’d like to thank our friends and fans from Santa Barbara and around the world for all of the well-wishes,” Kabaretti said via phone from Florence, Italy. “We are overwhelmed with the kindness shared by all. It is a very beautiful moment in our lives. Everyone is healthy and happy, although momma and papa are admittedly a little worn out. But our love and joy for this miracle supersede any amount of fatigue.”

Kabaretti became the music director of the Santa Barbara Symphony in 2006.

He will lead the orchestra in Ludwig van Beethoven’s spectacular Symphony No. 9 as part of the opening concerts of the season on Oct. 16-17 at The Granada.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
