Santa Barbara Strings Sets 2014 Spring Concert

The Santa Barbara Strings’ three progressive tiers of string ensembles will present an impressive array of pieces from the Baroque and beyond, including Edvard Grieg’s Holberg Suite and a Pietro Antonio Locatelli Concerto Grosso, at its free 2014 Spring Concert in May.

Concerto competition winners will be presenting the Antonio Lucio Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Cellos and featured violin soloist, Joshelle Conley, will perform “Summer” from both the Vivaldi and Piazzolla Four Seasons.

“Storytelling with Strings Attached: The Seasons” is an original composition for a full-string orchestra featuring student composers, illustrators and poets and will be premiered with screen-projected illustrations and narration.

Santa Barbara Strings trains, nurtures and inspires young musicians by delving into the rich repertoire of the String Orchestra. Created by artistic director Mary Beth Woodruff, the sophisticated program trains students through progressive string orchestras and the Chamber Ensemble Program studying masterworks composers from the Baroque to Modern Period.

The Santa Barbara Strings’ Spring Concert will take place at 4 p.m. May 17 at Hahn Hall at the Music Academy of the West, 1070 Fairway Road in Montecito. Admission is free and families are most welcome.

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.
