    The Santa Maria Philharmonic Society, which looked forward to bringing you a stunning season of live classical music for 2020-2021, had to annul the season in conformance with Santa Barbara County Health Department orders.  The current plan will be to restore these spectacular programs for a live 2021-2022 season.  The Philharmonic will need your support to finish out this most unusual fiscal year and launch in-person performances in the Fall.
