Important Update to Our Outreach Community:
The Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation understands that the impact of COVID-19 is challenging for everyone. Please know that you are all on our minds and in our hearts during these times.
As Bowl leadership actively searches for an optimal course of actions that best serve our organization, our program partners, and our community, all Outreach funding is temporarily paused. Updates will be communicated as soon as they are available.
For other information regarding how the Bowl is taking action to prevent the spread of COVID-19, please visit https://sbbowl.com/covid19.
May you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy. We appreciate your understanding and can’t wait to pick up the 2020 Concert Season with you as soon as possible.
