The Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra (SBCO) celebrates 34 years of exemplary music making with a mission that has remained the same over the years - to maintain a Chamber Orchestra in Santa Barbara that is of the highest artistic quality possible, to produce the finest music heard in Santa Barbara, and to perform well-known repertoire as well as music written in this century.
Founded in 1978 by Jeffrey Evans, a conducting student, the Chamber Orchestra had humble beginnings as a community orchestra performing in coffee house and other venues in Santa Barbara. Five years later Heiichiro Ohyama became Music Director and the direction of the SBCO changed dramatically. Under Maestro Ohyama, the SBCO become an orchestra of professional musicians and his conducting and programming gifts have led the SBCO to be known among many as the best artistic producing organization in the Santa Barbara area. Critically acclaimed pianists such as Alessio Bax, Tong Il Han, Wu Han, Jerome Lowenthal, David Golub, Yefim Bronfman, and André Michel Schub, violinists Cho-Liang Lin, Mark Kaplan, and Kyoko Takezawa, and cellists Lyn Harrell, Gary Hoffman, and Carter Brey have appeared as guest soloists with the SBCO. Many Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra musicians have gone on to other exciting musical endeavors. Current and past SBCO musicians perform with the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Los Angeles Opera, Pacific Symphony, St Louis Symphony, and Santa Barbara Symphony.
Maestro Ohyama’s experience includes Artistic Director of the La Jolla Music Society's “SummerFest” from 1986-97, Artistic Director of the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival from 1991-97, the Principal Chief Conductor of Kyushu Symphony Orchestra in Fukuoka, Japan from 1999-2004 and the Osaka Symphony Orchestra from 2004-2008. Maestro Ohyama was Music Director of the Nagasaki Music Festival from 2007-2009. He was also Professor of Music at University of California since 1973 to 2003. In 2005, he received the ‘Fukuoka City Cultural Prize’ and in 2008, ‘Outstanding Performance Award’ by the Japanese Government.
With an orchestra comprising 30 musicians, the SBCO offers the community musically engaging experiences with its five-concert subscription series at the newly renovated Lobero Theatre, one of Santa Barbara’s architectural treasures. SBCO performs October through May, with an audience capacity of 600 per concert. The Chamber Players Series, a two-concert chamber music series, features Maestro Ohyama performing as violist with members of the SBCO, as well as guest artists.
Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Executive Director supervises and directs all aspects of Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra’s operations and is responsible for the consistent achievement of the organization’s mission. The Executive Director will be the chief spokesperson for the Chamber Orchestra, holding the organization’s mission, vision and values as a guide while maintaining excellent relationships with SBCO’s Board, donors, and audience, as well as the Santa Barbara community with a goal of continuing the organization’s growth of donors and patrons. The scope of responsibility includes oversight of all aspects of the organization, including, budget, brand building & marketing, ticket sales and audience development, fund development, contract negotiations with musicians and venues, external relations, and the overall operational, financial, and administrative management.
