An evening of “love songs both sad and ecstatic” is presented in partnership with the Channel Island Chamber Orchestra at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden’s final Summer Serenade Series concert of the 2022 season on Friday, July 29 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Seating is on the Island View lawn outside the Pritzlaff Conservation Center and guests are encouraged to bring blankets and picnics. Leashed dogs are also – and always – allowed at the Garden. The series began on July 15 and featured local poets (including a former Santa Barbara poet laurate) and local solo musicians, and continued on July 22 with three local singer-songwriters.
Tickets are available online at $25 for adults, and $10 for youth (3-12 years old).
This concert features the orchestra’s clarinetist David Singer, pianist Miriam Arichea, and soprano Patricia Lathrop-McPherson. The program is highlighted by Mozart’s “Parto, Parto, (“I am leaving”)” from La Clemenza di Tito, K. 621, and J.W. Kalliwoda’s “Heimatlied” (Homeland) op. 117, among many others.
