UC Santa Barbara Department of Music
The UCSB Department of Music announces its Fall 2016 Concert Series! The department offers a wide variety of music to the Santa Barbara and Goleta communities, with something for every music lover. The fall season opens with a recital by flutist and faculty member, Jill Felber, who will be joined by several of her colleagues for a beautiful evening of chamber music at Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Santa Barbara. The Ensemble for Contemporary Music will follow, with their fall presentation of cutting-edge, adventurous works. The University Wind Ensemble will balance the long-standing tradition of the wind band repertoire with pieces by some of today’s most captivating young composers. The department’s classical ensembles, such as the Chamber Choir & Women’s Chorus and the Chamber Orchestra & Chamber Players, are set to present fresh interpretations of timeless pieces from the classical repertoire. Outstanding world and contemporary ensembles, such as the Middle East Ensemble and the Gospel Choir, will bring music from across the globe to the heart of campus. The Jazz Combos, which never cease to please their audiences, will present stellar performances of jazz standards, paired with some of today’s most in-demand modern jazz pieces. As always, we offer FREE tickets for children under 12 years of age for every event, and FREE tickets for UCSB students for select performances. For more information on each performance, please check back in the fall.
