As the Santa Barbara community works together to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, the Santa Barbara Symphony announces the cancelation of Poulenc & Saint-Saëns with guest organ soloist Cameron Carpenter scheduled April 18-19.

It is not currently possible to reschedule this program; updates will be provided regarding additional changes to the Santa Barbara Symphony’s performance schedule.

“The symphony continues to take a proactive stance during these unprecedented times to prioritize the health and safety of our musicians, visiting artists, employees, patrons, and our community at large,” said Kevin A. Marvin, president/CEO of the Santa Barbara Symphony.

“In cooperation with the Granada Theatre, our board, staff and musicians, we regretfully must cancel our April 2020 performances,” he said.

While the orchestra is off stage, the symphony plans to share free online broadcasts. Programming for these broadcasts will include some favorite performances from seasons past, in addition to curated Spotify playlists and video moments and conversations with music and artistic director Nir Kabaretti.

Information for the broadcasts will be available online at, distributed by the symphony via email, and on the symphony’s Facebook page.
