The CAMA Centennial presents an opportunity for Santa Barbarans

to pause and celebrate the remarkable uniqueness of our beautiful

community. Few small cities in the nation are able to support

the broad diversity of cultural and artistic organizations that

regularly enrich the lives of our citizens and attract visitors from far afield. As

Santa Barbara’s oldest arts organization, CAMA is proud to have offered local

residents the opportunity to experience great music from the finest orchestras

and most celebrated musicians from around the world for the past 100 years.

And we are grateful to have received the strong support from the community

that any classical music presenter needs to have thrived over a century of excellence.

It is a partnership that reflects the shining quality of our community, and we look

forward to strengthening this bond as we move into our second century of presenting

the best in music for everyone in Santa Barbara.

So thank you for joining CAMA in celebrating this notable

milestone in Santa Barbara’s history!

Kostis Protopapas was named General

Director of Opera Santa Barbara in

December 2017, after two-and-a-half

seasons as Artistic Director. Under his

leadership the company ended the 2017-

18 season with an operating surplus,

while gaining acclaim for the mainstage

productions of Manon and The Barber

of Seville, and breaking new ground with

staged productions for both the Santa

Barbara Youth Opera and the Chrisman

Studio Artists.

During his time as Artistic Director

and principal conductor Kostis brought

a unified vision to OSB’s musical and

production values, strengthening the

orchestra, chorus, engaging some of

the country’s most promising young

directors and singers, and building a highperforming

production team. The result

was productions of both familiar and new

repertoire which are counted among the

finest in the company’s history.

In the company’s 25th anniversary

season, Kostis oversaw three mainstage

productions, including new productions of

Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin and Robert

Ward’s The Crucible, a 25th anniversary

gala concert, the company’s first-ever

student matinee production, as well as

productions featuring the Santa Barbara

Youth Opera and the Chrisman Studio

Artists.

In addition to successful mainstage

performances, under Kostis’ leadership

Opera Santa Barbara saw the creation of

the Santa Barbara Youth Opera, a program

providing educational and performance

opportunities for school-age children, the

expansion of the company’s Studio Artists

program to a season-long residency, and

an impressive geographic range covering

much of the Central Coast in the company’s

outreach and educational activities.

Born in Athens, Greece, Kostis

Protopapas studied Archaeology and

History of Art at the University of Athens

before coming to the United States in 1993,

on an Onassis Foundation scholarship, to

study piano at The Boston Conservatory

and conducting at Boston University. He

became an American citizen in 2011 and

splits his time between Santa Barbara

and Chicago.
