Community Arts Music Association (CAMA)

CAMA, Santa Barbara’s oldest arts organization, brings the finest classical musicians from around the globe to Santa Barbara, CA. Now in its 95th season, CAMA presents an exciting mix of internationally acclaimed orchestras and soloists in two concert series.

CAMA’s 2013-2014 International Series at The Granada Theatre is surely a Season of the Violin, with appearances by three of the instrument’s great masters, Itzhak Perlman in recital, Pinchas Zukerman with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and Joshua Bell with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. The Los Angeles Philharmonic returns with mega-maestro Gustavo Dudamel, and the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra makes its second CAMA appearance, this time with distinguished conductor Neeme Järvi. The amazing young musicians of the Bahia Youth Symphony Orchestra (of Brazil) make their Santa Barbara debut with charismatic pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Season Sponsorship provided by SAGE Publications.

A season of great artistic and musical depth, CAMA’s 2014 Masterseries at the Lobero includes performances by two of the world’s top pianists, Stephen Hough and Richard Goode, both returning to the Lobero stage following highly successful past appearances. It is also a Season of “Geniuses,” as past MacArthur Fellowship winner Stephen Hough shares the series with 2012 MacArthur Fellow Chris Thile (of Punch Brothers), making his Santa Barbara recital debut with mandolin transcriptions of Bach, and original compositions. The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio (piano, violin, cello) brings a meaty program of trios by Schubert, Mendelssohn and Brahms. Season Sponsorship provided by Esperia Foundation.
