A cinematic gem brought to life on the concert stage. The Santa Barbara Symphony performs John Corigliano’s Academy Award-winning score for The Red Violin, accompanied by François Girard’s engrossing film in its entirety. Canadian violinist Lara St. John will remarkably recreate the demanding solo passages depicted on screen, in what amounts to a virtuosic two-hour concerto!
