Music lovers living on property in Montecito have the opportunity to experience some of Bach's greatest pieces for the violin at the end of March. The University of California Santa Barbara is presenting Gil Shaham, a Grammy award winning violinist, who will be playing Bach's Sei Solo live to a video production by David Michalek. Montecito residents are known for their love of the arts, and this Arts and Lectures event at the Granada Theatre is sure to surpass its audience's expectations.
