    Santa Barbara Music Club 50th Season of Free Concerts

    Dear Music Club Concert Goers:

    We had great plans for our 50th Anniversary season. Our performing members outdid themselves in submitting proposals for challenging and unusual works, including many by the excellent living composers in our community. Our Concert Committee did a stellar job of curating the programs. By all indications, this was to be our best season yet.
