Santa Barbara’s flooded-out “Red Violin” concerts reset for June 16 and 17

Posted on: June 12, 2018

In January, the Santa Barbara Symphony’s concerts of John Corigliano’s The Red Violin were postponed following catastrophic flooding in Montecito and nearby areas. The rescheduled concerts, which feature Corigliano’s score performed live to a screening of the 1998 film of the same name, will take place at the Granada Theatre on June 16 and 17, led by guest conductor Carolyn Kuan with violinist Lara St. John as soloist. “We view these concerts as another small step toward reclaiming a semblance of normalcy for our community,” said Santa Barbara Symphony Executive Director Kevin A. Marvin. “There’s something cathartic—exultant even—about returning to a program thought to be another casualty of the devastating mud flows in Montecito.”
