Santa Barbara Symphony Presents CARMINA BURANA in October

In a spectacular tour-de-force Season Opening, The Symphony continues its impactful tradition of performing arts collaboration to create new experiences for the community. More than 150 performers from State Street Ballet, Santa Barbara Choral Society, Quire of Voyces and the Music Academy's Sing!

Children's Chorus join The Symphony on stage in a program that features a new ballet to Gabrielle Fauré's pensive Pavane, a wildly decadent ode to wine and fertility with Camille Saint-Saëns' Danse Bacchanale from the opera Samson and Delilah, and concludes with Carl Orff's beloved and powerful Carmina Burana. This concert is part of the Granada Synergy Series.
