Cellist Zuill Bailey to Headline Paris Celebration in Santa Barbara Symphony Season Finale
May 14, 2017 • 3:00 pm PDT
— The Santa Barbara Symphony, under the baton of Maestro Nir Kabaretti, will bring its 2016-17 season to a memorable close with a festive celebration of Paris featuring Grammy Award-winning cellist Zuill Bailey at the Granada Theatre on May 13 and 14. In addition to Saint-Saëns’ dramatic first Cello Concerto, the program will include Mozart’s grandly charming Symphony No. 31 “Paris,” Liszt’s Les preludes, and George Gershwin’s richly evocative An American in Paris. Concert times are 8 pm on Saturday, May 13, and 3 pm on Sunday, May 14. Tickets are now available.
“We are delighted to highlight these four composers’ storied ties to the City of Lights,” said Maestro Kabaretti, now in his 11th season as the Santa Barbara Symphony’s music director. “Soloist Zuill Bailey has had a long, fruitful relationship with the Santa Barbara Symphony, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have him on hand for these concerts. A fitting conclusion to a spectacular season!”
