The Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra (SBCO) is suspending operations for the 2017-18 season while its Board of Directors contemplates the organization’s ongoing financial viability.

The orchestra’s 2016-17 season concludes on 5/16 at the Lobero Theatre with acclaimed pianist Alessio Bax performing Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A Minor.
