11/23 - Save the Date! Always Free Concert - Santa Barbara Music Club -- 12/5 ... One of the highlights of Santa Barbara Music Club's concerts is the opportunity for audiences to hear great music from a variety of historical periods, with a diversity of musical forms, performed by excellent artists. This concert features music for piano four hands from the Romantic and Contemporary periods, performed by Zeynep Ucbasaran and Sergio Gallo. The program opens with Max Reger's Introduction and Passacaglia, an imposing work from the German expressionist composer who held the post of Music Director and Professor at the Royal Conservatory in Leipzig. As expected, the music is complex and at times cerebral, but always exhibiting a Brahmsian solidity and Wagnerian grandeur.
A tender lul...
11/20 - First Southbound Gray Whale ... It was another gorgeous day with sunny, warm skies and calm seas. Again the above-water visibility was spectacular and we could see spouts 8 miles away with binoculars. We saw 1 Minke whale, over 200 common dolphins, 4 humpback whales, and the show-stopper: 1 southbound gray whale.
The gray whale was small, perhaps a yearling, and is the first southbound gray whale we’ve seen this season. We were surprised to find it in the middle of the Santa Barbara Channel, migrating through a zone where we have been seeing a lot of humpback whales and Minke whales the past week or so. As if the presence of this early whale was not enough, it turned out to be exceedingly friendly and came very close to the side of the Condor Express several times and given...
