CHECK BELOW FOR DIGITAL EVENTS! -- ALL IN-PERSON EVENTS ARE CANCELED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

In an effort to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19 in the community, Chancellor Henry Yang announced on Tuesday, March 10th that the UC Santa Barbara campus will be transitioning to remote instruction until it's safe for our community to gather at the public events. Even though faced with challanges of createing performing arts pieces over Zoom, our students, faculty, and staff worked tirelessly to produce exciting season of events.

In the fall quarter of 2020-2021 we are producing more events than in a regular school year and we are very excited to share them with our community for free. For timely updates on our events stay in touch and SUBSCRIBE HERE.
