The Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts is honored to announce the shining stars to be honored at its third annual Granada Theatre Legends Gala to be held Sept. 15.

The Legends Gala honors individuals and organizations that have had a significant impact on the performing arts, and this year the SBCPA is proud to celebrate Santa Barbara philanthropists Anne and Michael Towbes, opera singer Marilyn Horne and the Music Academy of the West as its 2017 Legends.

The 2017 Granada Theatre Legends Gala is co-chaired by local luminaries Gretchen Lieff and Stephanie Sokolove, supported by a dynamic Legends Gala Committee. This stunning event is one of Santa Barbara’s most impressive occasions and, in addition to showcasing their legends, the evening features extraordinary performances by some of the finest performing arts talent from Santa Barbara’s cultural community.

All proceeds from the Legends Gala will help to ensure that this state-of-the-art venue continues to actively engage the community through diverse live performance and filmed entertainment programming. In addition, funds raised from the gala will assist the SBCPA in its effort to provide best-practices business and marketing support services for The Granada Theatre’s eight resident companies and its Historic Theatre District partners.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact Hayley Firestone Jessup, vice president for advancement, at 805.899.3000 or [email protected].

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!
