  • UCSB Chamber Orchestra
The UCSB Chamber Orchestra will present live in November 2021 an all-Beethoven program, which will serve as the ensemble's first live, in-person performance since the 20-month-long pause caused by the COVID pandemic. This program was initially scheduled for a June 2020 concert to celebrate Beethoven's 250th Anniversary, which was commemorated that year around the world. The program will feature an energetic overture to Beethoven’s opera Fidelio and a special treat of the composer's Symphony No. 6 "Pastoral," a true gem in the collection of his nine symphonies. Dr. Maxim Kuzin, Director of the UCSB Chamber Orchestra, shared that “we are very enthusiastic to see our audiences back in person at Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall in November!” Please join the ensemble on Monday, November 29, 2021 at 7:30 pm in Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall on the UC Santa Barbara campus.
