UCSB Arts & Lectures introduced their 2014-2015 season at the Montecito Country Club on Thursday, June 12. Attendees, which included the press (e.g., your funding peer) and supporters of Arts & Lectures were lavished with free wine, wine glasses, and hors d'oeuvres (the bacon-wrapped goodies were especially tasty).
The 2014-2015 season of BOLD MOVES and BIG IDEAS will feature 62 events, including 25 Santa Barbara debuts, three world premieres, and two co-commissions by UCSB Arts & Lectures.
Highlights include The Joffrey Ballet, Matt Groening & Lynda Barry, Anne-Sophie Mutter with Yefim Bronfman & Lynn Harrell, Herbie Hancock & Chick Corea, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Ina Garten, Audra McDonald, Hotel Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Kodo, The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, and Magic Johnson.
