Santa Barbara Symphony Presents Free Benefit Concert

The Santa Barbara Symphony, in partnership with Montecito Bank & Trust and the Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts, invites the community to gather at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 18, in the Granada Theatre for a free benefit concert.

The event will feature guitarist and artist-in-residence Pablo Sáinz Villegas, accompanied by a small orchestra.

Montecito Bank & Trust volunteers will be on hand to collect donations for disaster relief and recovery efforts in Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria.

“This will be an evening of community and comfort, with the healing power of music,” said Kevin A. Marvin, Santa Barbara Symphony executive director. “Pablo Sáinz Villegas and the orchestra will present an intimate and uplifting performance.”

Tickets will be available during business hours Wednesday and Thursday at the Symphony office, 1330 State St., ste. 102, and at the door the night of the concert. The Granada seats 1,500 people; tickets will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Santa Barbara Symphony concerts scheduled for Jan. 20-21 featuring the film The Red Violin and violinist Lara St. John have been postponed until June 16-17. Tickets purchased for the January performances will be honored at the June concerts.

For more information, call 898-9386.

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!
