"Among the musical riches with which this community is blessed,
the Santa Barbara Music Club shines especially bright"
"The Santa Barbara Music Club was there for me with financial support, performance opportunities, community support and career guidance whenever I needed it. Their organization was an integral part of my musical education and played an essential role in allowing me to study with the best names in the industry. I can never thank the SBMC enough for all they did for me in my formative years of study. They will always be a big part of the reason I am the successful concert artist I am today. The SBMC's never ending support of talented young artists is just one example of why classical music in this country will not only survive but thrive. Thank you so much SBMC!"
--Tracy Harris, Yamaha International Performing Artist and Clinician
