We have just been notified that Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra has cancelled the whole of next season.

The music director is Heiichiro Ohyama.

UPDATE: We have spoken to the board chair, Joe Campanelli. He says the board will meet tonight to take the critical decision. The only thing that can save the season is if a new board is formed that can pledge extra money.
