The Santa Barbara Music Club has been among the most stalwart local chamber music organizations in the US. On December 4, 2017 it presented one of a series of concerts to celebrate the 90th birthday of one of their local musical heros, composer Emma Lou Diemer.
This evening featured keyboard duos, including Diemer's "Norteamexispanicumsake" (1995). On the 29th of March, the Seattle Collaborative Orchestra, conducted by Anna Edwards, will perform Emma Lou Diemer's SANTA BARBARA OVERTURE. Her CONCERTO FOR VIOLIN (2012) composed and premiered by Philip Ficsor was recently published by Lauren Keiser Music Publishing.
