MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU
It was announced last week that the Santa Barbara Symphony was forced to cancel its annual free July 4th Pops concert in the County Courthouse Sunken Gardens. A major decrease in funding is behind the cancellation, which will save the symphony over $72,000. For info, visit thesymphony.org.
