The event will be free and open to the public, and will take advantage of UC Santa Barbara’s many performance venues, including the Multicultural Center Theater, the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, Karl Geiringer Hall, and the Digital Arts & Humanities Commons.
Among the exciting highlights of this year's festival are the world premieres of new works by UCSB graduate composers, as well as a Children's Concert with appearances by festival artists.
