The Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra announced on Tuesday that it would suspend operations for the 2017-18 season while its board of directors makes a decision as to the organization’s ongoing financial viability. Led by music director Heiichiro Ohyama since 1983, the SBCO has earned a reputation as one of the finest chamber orchestras on the West Coast, attracting top international soloists and enlisting some of the best musicians in Southern California to its ranks. The orchestra’s 2016-17 season concludes on May 16 at the Lobero with acclaimed pianist Alessio Bax performing Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A Minor.
