The Santa Maria Philharmonic Society is looking forward to bringing you a stunning season of live classical music. As of August 3, 2020, based on current Santa Barbara Health Department orders and uncertainty about their extension, the Board has cancelled the concert planned for September 26, 2020.  We have tentative concepts for smaller, outdoor live music events, which we hope may take shape later in the Fall.  As we proceed through the coming months, we will be making tickets available for the remaining concerts in conformance with local health-related directives or providing alternative venues or offerings to keep classical music alive.
