Chamber Orchestra Offers Up Woodwind Delicacies at Lobero

The Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Heiichiro Ohyama, will perform a program of woodwind masterworks by Igor Stravinsky, Kurt Weill and other notable composers at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 21, at the Lobero Theatre, 33 E. Canon Perdido St.

The program will follow the orchestra’s second Supper Club dinner of the season. Ticket sales are underway at

Featured in the performance are Poulenc’s dance-based "Suite française" (d’après Claude Gervaise), Stravinsky’s Russian-folk-infused "Symphonies of Wind Instruments," and Weill’s “Kleine Dreigroschenmusik” Suite from The Threepenny Opera.

Also featured is "Sacred Women" by contemporary artist Jeff Scott.

An accomplished French horn player, Scott is perhaps best known as a founding member of the adventurous, Grammy-nominated quintet Imani Winds, whose dynamic performances The Washington Post has described as “exuding a sultry sophistication.”

His numerous arranging and composing credits include theatrical production scores as well as original works for solo winds, wind and brass quintet, horn quartet, and jazz ensembles.

The Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra is led by the Ohyama, now in his 34th year as the ensemble’s music director and conductor.

Over the course of his distinguished career he has served as principal violist and assistant conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic; principal chief conductor of the Kyushu Symphony Orchestra in Fukuoka, Japan, and the Osaka Symphony Orchestra.

He was artistic director of La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest and the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival; and music director of the Nagasaki Music Festival. He received the 1991 Gruber Award for Excellence in Chamber Music Teaching in Los Angeles.

The Supper Club dinner will feature Pence Ranch wines and Italian cuisine by Chef Renato Moiso of Santa Barbara’s Via Maestra 42 restaurant. The event will begin with wine service at 5:30 p.m. in the Lobero courtyard.

Dinner tickets cost $50 and seating is limited. Call 966-2441 for more information.

Concert tickets cost $54 and $64, and can be purchased at the Lobero Theatre Ticket Office, 963-0761, or by calling 966-2441.

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!
