The three-day Lobero Theatre Chamber Music Project with two concerts at the historic venue and a third at the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum under artistic and music director Heiichiro Ohyama, former maestro of the now defunct Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, kicked off in fine style with works by Dvořák and Bruckner.

The impressive players included pianist Lucille Chung, violinists Benjamin Beilman, Mayuko Ishigami, and Erin Keefe, concertmaster of the Minnesota Orchestra, Grammy-winning violist Masumi Per Rostad, and cellists Robert deMaine, principal cellist of the L.A. Phil, and Christine Lee.

The entertaining three-day program also included works by Debussy, Ravel, Fauré, Mozart, and Mendelssohn.
