LA Phil creates festivals, artist residencies,

and other thematic programs designed to

enhance the audience’s experience of orchestral

music. Since 1922, its summer

home has been the world-famous Hollywood

Bowl, host to the finest artists from

all genres of music.

The orchestra’s involvement with Los

Angeles extends far beyond the concert

hall, with wide-ranging performances in the

schools, churches, and neighborhood centers

of a vastly diverse community. Among

its influential and multifaceted learning initiatives

is YOLA (Youth Orchestra Los Angeles),

inspired by Venezuela’s revolutionary

El Sistema. Through YOLA, the LA Phil

and its community partners provide free

instruments, intensive music instruction,

and leadership training to nearly 1200 students

from underserved neighborhoods,

empowering them to become vital citizens,

leaders, and agents of change.

The orchestra also undertakes annual

tours, including regular visits to New

York, Paris, and Tokyo, among other cities.

The Philharmonic is now the International

Orchestral Partner at London’s Barbican

Centre. The orchestra’s very first tour was

in 1921, and it has toured every season

since 1969/70.

The LA Phil has a substantial catalog

of recordings, including concerts available

online, such as the first full-length classical

music video released on iTunes. Deutsche

Grammophon has recently released a comprehensive

box set in honor of the orchestra’s

Centennial.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic was

founded in 1919 by William Andrews Clark,

Jr., a millionaire and amateur musician.

Walter Henry Rothwell became its first

Music Director, serving until 1927; since

then, ten renowned conductors have

served in that capacity: Georg Schnéevoigt

(19271929); Artur Rodziński (1929

1933); Otto Klemperer (19331939); Alfred

Wallenstein (19431956); Eduard van Beinum

(19561959); Zubin Mehta (1962

1978); Carlo Maria Giulini (19781984);

André Previn (19851989); Esa-Pekka Salonen

(19922009); and Gustavo Dudamel

GUSTAVO DUDAMEL

Music & Artistic Director

Gustavo Dudamel is driven by the belief

that music has the power to transform

lives, to inspire, and to change the world.

Through his dynamic presence on the podium

and his tireless advocacy for arts

education, Dudamel has introduced classical

music to new audiences around the

world and has helped to provide access

to the arts for countless people in underresourced

communities.

Dudamel’s 2019/20 season sees him

enter his second decade as the Music & Artistic

Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic,

where his bold programming and

expansive vision led The New York Times to

herald the LA Phil as “the most important

orchestra in America period.” Other highlights

of the season include leading the

Berlin Philharmonic in four concerts for the

2020 Olympics celebrations in Tokyo, conducting

the New York Philharmonic for a

two-week residency at Lincoln Center, touring

a concert version of Beethoven’s opera

Fidelio throughout Europe with the Mahler

Chamber Orchestra (which will include the

famed Venezuelan “Manos Blancas” choir),

and an Italian tour with the Accademia

Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.

A lifelong advocate for music education

and social development through

art, Dudamel himself was shaped by his

childhood experience with El Sistema, the

extraordinary program and philosophy

initiated in 1975 by Maestro José Antonio

Abreu. Inspired by El Sistema, in 2007

Dudamel, the LA Phil, and its community

partners founded YOLA (Youth Orchestra

Los Angeles), which now serves more than

1,200 musicians, providing young people

with free instruments, intensive music instruction,

academic support, and leadership

training. In 2020, YOLA will have its

own permanent, purpose-built facility, the

Judith and Thomas L. Beckmen YOLA Center,

designed by architect Frank Gehry.

In recognition of Dudamel’s advocacy

for the proliferation of the arts in the Americas,

in 2019, he was honored with a star on

the Hollywood Walk of Fame and received

the Distinguished Artist Award from the International

Society for the Performing Arts

(ISPA). He was awarded the Gish Prize, the

Paez Medal of Art, and the Pablo Neruda

Order of Artistic and Cultural Merit in 2018.

In 2017, he led the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic

in the Nobel Prize Concert in

Sweden, where he also delivered a lecture

on the unity of the arts and sciences. Dudamel

was named one of Time magazine’s

100 most influential people in 2009.

Symphony No.2

Charles Ives (18741954)

Composed: 18971902; 19071909

Orchestration: piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes,

2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4

horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani,

percussion (snare drum, bass drum),

and strings

First Los Angeles Philharmonic performance:

August 9, 1960, with Walter Hendl

conducting

In the autumn of 1898, Charles Ives moved

to New York and established a pattern that

would be his modus operandi for the next

ten years, that being the pursuit of two

separate careers: composer and insurance

clerk (later to become an executive).

In Memos, Ives wrote that upon graduating

from Yale in 1898, with reference to career

and a future family, “If he has a nice wife

and some nice children, how can he let the

children starve on his dissonances?” Thus

the practical Yankee side of his character

won out.

For a bachelor in turn-of-the-century

New York, the excitement and general

pace of life was overwhelming, and opti-

A Young Charles Ives

mism for the coming century was electrifying,

literally and figuratively: the electric

light, motor car, telephone, motion picture,

airplane, et al. were, if not already in use,

then about to affect everyday existence.

Consequently, the United States was on

the verge of leading the world into a bright

future of scientific, economic, and social

progress, and New York was the hub. But

of course, accompanying this dynamism

and prosperity was omnipresent poverty.

Ives was aware of this ethical dichotomy

of technological and social advance and

wealth on one hand, and the extreme poverty

of urban life on the other. Mirror-like,

Ives simultaneously harbored in his inner

life both the socially progressive program

of the present and the vanishing spiritual

world of his youth. Both these strains were

to be synthesized in Ives’ future works, beginning

with his Second Symphony.

The Symphony No.2 marks the first

major work in which Ives exercises his

famous penchant for “borrowings” of

well-known hymns, marches, and popular

songs, as well quoting from his own earlier

works for organ. In addition to these

borrowings of American tunes emanating

from Ives’ childhood, he also continues

to reference European music, Dvořák

especially, particularly the Largo from the

“New World” Symphony with its sense of

nostalgia. In a sense, the Symphony No.2

is a transition piece between the pure European

tradition of the First Symphony to the

pure Americanism of the Third Symphony.

A plaintive theme stated in the cellos

begins the opening Andante moderato. Following

various other thematic materials, it

is restated with a fragment from “Columbia,

Gem of the Ocean” making a brief appearance.

The second movement is a lively

jaunt, which is interrupted by a slow lyric

section for strings, flutes, and oboes. Each

of these sections is repeated; “Bringing in

the Sheaves” is perhaps the most obvious

borrowing in this movement. The Adagio

cantabile puts fragments from “America

the Beautiful” in a pastoral setting. The

Lento Maestoso sets a tragic tone that is

briefly disrupted by a fragment of “Columbia,

Gem of the Ocean.” The last movement

is a quick moving romp of brilliant contrapuntal

writing that climaxes in a medley including

“Camptown Races,” “Turkey in the

Straw,” and once again, “Columbia, Gem of

the Ocean” that at the very end is abruptly

cut off by a blaring fragment of “Reveille,”

perhaps the most “Ivesian” gesture of

the Symphony.

Symphony No.9

in E Minor, Op.95

(“From the New World”)

Antonín Dvořák (18411904)

Composed: 189293

Orchestration: 2 flutes (2nd = piccolo), 2

oboes (2nd = English horn), 2 clarinets,

2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones,

Has there ever been a work so beloved, so

a fair hearing as the “New World” Symphony?

much a part of American culture that it

was familiar to people who had never even

heard it. So much in it has been quoted and

rehashed that it now sounds like a cliché.

This ultimate piece of Americana

actually grew out of an attempt to create

an American style of composition. To this

end, a visionary patron of the arts named

Jeanette Thurber founded a National Conservatory

in New York and engaged Dvořák

as its director. Dvořák arrived with his wife

and two oldest children in September 1892,

and threw himself into teaching, composing,

and absorbing America.

Since Dvořák was a “nationalist” who

grounded his own music in Czech folk tradition,

he was naturally curious about the

folk music of America. In interviews with

New York newspapers, he opined that the

Antonín Dvořák in 1904

music of native Americans and Black people

would be the real source of folk music

on which to base an American national

style. His knowledge of “Indian” music

would have come from published collections,

filtered through the ears of white editors.

He would have come to know black

music from more varied sources. He made

a special point of having Harry Burleigh, a

black National Conservatory student who

later became famous as a publisher of

spirituals, sing real black music to him.

Dvořák began the symphony in late

1892 and finished it the following May. The

first performance, in New York on December

16, 1893, was a major event, with a public

rehearsal and much advance press attention.

Its reception was a major triumph,

and it occasioned much enthusiastic discussion

from the musical intelligentsia

about just how American it really was. In

the ensuing century, little has changed: the

symphony’s popularity has endured, and

talking about how much the “New World”

Symphony sounded like what American

music was before American music started

to sound like the “New World” Symphony

remains a favorite pastime.

Clearly there is a lot of Bohemia in

the Symphony. Dvořák was not going to

change his style in nine months. But it also

sounds different from his previous works.

Dvořák wrote to a friend in Bohemia that

the Symphony “will be fundamentally different

from my earlier ones. Anyone with a

‘nose’ for these things will detect the influence

of America.”

But many observers, nasally challenged

or not, have disagreed. Perhaps the

most extreme view was voiced by Leonard

Bernstein, who devoted a chapter of his

1966 book The Infinite Variety of Music to

arguing that there was virtually nothing

American about the Symphony. Bernstein

examined each theme of the symphony,

identified whatever aspect of it that was

thought to be American, and pointed out

that there was nothing exclusively American

about that aspect. The argument

proves too much: Bernstein could similarly

have “proved” that there is nothing American

about hot dogs because they are made

from a sausage that originated in Frankfurt.

But his views were, as always, insightful

and provocative.

Dvořák insisted that while he took inspiration

from folk music, he borrowed no

actual melodies. The Symphony is remarkable

for its sheer number of memorable

tunes: nearly all of them are the sort that

you hum going home from the concert. For

just this reason, the Symphony sometimes

gives short shrift to symphonic development:

it needs less compositional craft

because the sheer melodic invention is

so inspired.

Everything Dvořák touched here turned

to gold. Even when he dealt with a practical

structural problem—how to go from E

minor, the key in which the first movement

ends, to the Largo’s distant D-flat major

without jolting the listener’s ear—his solution

was haunting: the seven magical

chords that begin the second movement

are unforgettable, though they appear only

four times, including a curtain call in the finale.

It’s easy to conclude that Dvořák kept

bringing themes back in later movements

not for purposes of unity, but because he

couldn’t bear to part with them.

Several sources close to Dvořák said

that the slow movement was inspired by

episodes in Longfellow’s Song of Hiawatha,

which Dvořák had read in a Czech translation

and, at Mrs. Thurber’s suggestion,

was considering as the subject of an opera.

Some of the movement may even have

started as sketches for such an opera. But

the sources do not agree on which part(s)

of Hiawatha Dvořák may have had in mind,

and the principal theme, the English horn’s

famous song, is not “Indian” at all. It has the

character of a black spiritual, but it betrays

its high-art origins when it modulates into

the subdominant, a bit of harmonic sophistication

uncommon in real spirituals. Years

later, one of Dvořák’s National Conservatory

students, a white man named William

Fisher, gave it words and turned it into a

song called “Goin’ Home” that was popular

for many years. Bernstein, again overstating

his case, noted: “It evokes for us the

picture of field hands, plantation workers

crooning in the moonlight, Gone with the

Wind, what have you—but only because we

have heard it so constantly played or sung,

in the movies or on the radio or wherever,

in practically every southern situation. (If

we were to put Czech words to it, it would

Chinese words it would sound Chinese.)”

Dvořák said that the Scherzo was inspired

by Longfellow’s description of the

dance at Hiawatha’s wedding feast. But

its material is the most characteristically

Czech in the symphony. The rhythm of the

woodwinds’ perky first theme is typical of

the Czech language and is found in Czech

folk songs. (There is nothing folky about

the insistent rhythmic pull of three against

two that yanks the theme along.) The lilting

middle section could pass for one of

Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances.

The finale begins as a normal sonata

movement, but somewhere in the development

becomes something else. Much of

what it develops is thematic material from

the first three movements. Finally, there’s

that unmistakable boogie-woogie walking

bass just before the final chords: is it

a transformation of the first movement’s

main theme, or had Dvořák actually heard

some ragtime pianist? Either explanation

is possible, historically speaking, but

neither is probable. Genius is often hard

to explain.

CAMA chose to invest

in the cultural life

of the Santa Barbara

community and invited

the brand-new Los Angeles Philharmonic

to perform. Through peace time and war,

economic booms and busts, the relationship

of our two organizations has continued

and grown. We are proud to continue this

British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor (b.1992) has been described as “the best pianist to come out of

England in the last 50 years,” and “one of the world’s most sought-after young pianists.” One needs only to

listen to him play to understand the accolades are well-deserved; his playing is reminiscent of legendary

pianists that are long gone—Rachmaninoff, Schnabel, Rubinstein, Serkin. His promise was evident from a

young age—the winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of

eleven, and at nineteen invited to perform with the BBC Symphony

Orchestra at the Opening Night of the 2011 BBC Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The upcoming

in Santa Barbara by the Civic Music Committee

(one of CAMA’s direct predecessors) in 1920,

the Los Angeles Philharmonic gave the CAMA

during the 1925/26 season. The LA Phil also gave

CAMA’s final concert at the “old Granada,” on

April 21, 1976, with Zubin Mehta conducting a

program of Mozart and Mahler. In between, CAMA

presented the LA Phil in dozens of concerts at

the Granada—48 concerts during the 1950s alone.

More than 40 conductors led the Los

Angeles Philharmonic as Music Director or guest

conductor in concerts at the Granada Theatre

from 19251976, including (in chronological

order) Henry Eichheim, Otto Klemperer, Alfred

36 CAMA'S 101ST CONCERT SEASON


Bringing the Music

After WWI, several people in town sought

to introduce talented professionals and

great music to Santa Barbara. One such

person was Clara E. Herbert, who presented

the Philharmonic Course and Artists

Series for the Potter Theatre. This program

brought well-known solo artists, musical

ensembles, and orchestras to town, generally

for the winter-spring season. Clara

Herbert solicited subscribers and season

ticket holders, and her concerts were always

favorably reviewed.

By December 1921, the Morning Press

was able to say, “The Philharmonic season

is said to be the backbone, in a sense, of

Santa Barbara’s musical activities. Mrs.

C.E. Herbert, who has arranged for the

series of vocal and instrumental affairs,

has been frequently mentioned as the

leading spirit of the musical world here.”

In the early 1920s, Clara Herbert brought

performers like the great bandleader John

Philip Sousa and Metropolitan Opera Company

soprano Anna Case to the stage of

the Potter Theatre. She continued to be a

vital part of the movement to bring excellent

music and artists to Santa Barbara for

nearly 40 years.

In 1919 another such organization, the

Civic Music Committee, was formed. It, too,

planned to bring the best of the orchestral

and classical music world to Santa Barbara.

Its first season opened with the performance

of the Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra

directed by Adolf Tandler. Backed

by a generous group of patrons, the Civic

Santa Barbara Historical Museum

Music Committee believed that music not

only gave pleasure but had a high educational

value as well.

The Board of Directors of the Civic

Music Committee included members

whose devotion to civic improvements and

patronage of the arts was unparalleled.

Mrs. Alexander C. (Bertha) Soper, the wife

of a physician; Mrs. John Hopkins (Pearl)

Denison; Samuel Ilsley, local architect; and

David Gray, to name just a few, were involved

in multiple cultural and community

organizations of the time. The list of the

guarantors for the Civic Music Committee’s

CAMA AT THE GRANADA THEATRE • LOS ANGELES PHILHARMONIC

37


concert series looked like a veritable

Who’s Who of Santa Barbara and Montecito

society. Nearly every prominent philanthropist

in town supported the organization.

From the five “Hilltop Barons” (Cowles,

Knapp, Peabody, Gray, and Billings) in

Montecito to the Hoffmanns, Blacks, and

Hazards in town, at its height over 90

patrons sponsored the Civic Music Committee

in bringing great music to Santa

Barbara audiences.

The hit of that first season, however,

and all seasons thereafter, was the muchanticipated

concert of the newly-formed

Philharmonic Orchestra of Los Angeles,

which took to the Potter stage on Monday,

March 6, 1920. Bertha Soper was directly

responsible for introducing the LA Phil to

Santa Barbara. She had promoted the symphony

to influential residents in the area,

especially Samuel M. Ilsley, who became

chairman of the Santa Barbara Regional

Board of the new orchestra.

William Andrews Clark, Jr.

and the Philharmonic

Orchestra of Los Angeles

At the beginning of June 1919, William

Andrews Clark, Jr., son of Montana’s Copper

King and controversial U.S. Senator,

invited Lynden E. Behymer, ardent cultural

promoter and founder of the Los Angeles

Symphony Orchestra, to his home in Los

Angeles. Clark wanted to know how he

would go about forming a symphony orchestra

of 90 or more men for a series of

concerts in Los Angeles and vicinity. He

wanted Behymer to assist him in this endeavor;

in other words, to make it happen.

“I informed Mr. Clark,” Behymer wrote

in a 1922 article for Pacific Coast Musical

Review, “that this wholesale order was of

such proportions and demanded such

careful preparation with the season already

far advanced, that it was almost

an impossibility….and, unless at least five

years of continuous life could be guaranteed,

it would be impossible to secure a

fine membership.”

Clark and Behymer spoke for several

hours about the financial and other hurdles

that needed to be overcome to create such

an organization. “In the end,” wrote Behymer,

“this splendid patron of fine arts quietly

said that he was prepared to place at the

disposal of the Philharmonic Orchestra

Association of Los Angeles a yearly check

sufficient to cover any deficit that might

occur—a gracious tribute to the music lovers

of Los Angeles.”

William Andrews Clark, Jr. had grown

up in Montana, earned a law degree from

the University of Virginia, and directed

minor industries with his father’s financing.

He moved to Los Angeles in 1907, but

served as the vice president of the family’s

United Verde Mines in Arizona. Money, as

they say, was not an issue. Clark Senior

was a patron of art and music in Montana

and New York. He had sponsored his young

ward, Anna La Chapelle, in music studies in

Paris, where she studied the harp. It was

in France, too, where she secretly married

Clark Senior and gave birth to their first

daughter, Andrée.

In November 1923, Clark Senior, who

had rented the Bellosguardo estate on

Booth’s Point in Santa Barbara for the

winter, decided to buy it. He offered Lee

Eleanor Graham $250,000 for the estate,

and she, recently divorced and in financial

straits, accepted with alacrity. Clark Senior

would not enjoy his winter home for long,

however, as he died 15 months later at his

mansion in New York.

Clark Junior was a skilled violinist and

collector of rare books, especially 17th and

18th century English literature. He built a

Renaissance-style library with, appropriately

enough, copper shelving for his collection.

Having established Los Angeles

as his home and realizing that most of his

income derived from Western properties,

Clark Junior wanted to contribute to the

cultural institutions of his adopted home.

Behymer took up the cause and soon

realized that Clark’s knowledge of symphonic

literature was extensive. “During

the summer of 1919,” wrote Behymer, “Mr.

Clark was very active in consultations regarding

the employment of the various

musicians who were to occupy the solo

and first chairs; his intimate knowledge of

composers was shown in the selection of

the well assorted library of the new orchestra.”

As the summer progressed and the orchestra

rehearsed, Clark was often found

“sitting in” with the first violins. Then, on

Friday afternoon, October 24, and Saturday

evening, October 25, 1919, what had

seemed impossible happened; conductor

Walter Henry Rothwell raised his baton,

and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Los Angeles,

after only a five-month gestation period,

rose fully formed and played its first

concerts to packed houses.

That first season, the orchestra played

dozens of concerts, both symphonic and

popular, and brought music to schools

and other venues in Southern California.

In March 1920, a full three years before

Clark Senior purchased his estate in Santa

Barbara, the Los Angeles Philharmonic

Orchestra arrived at the Potter Theatre,

where music lovers anxiously awaited

their performance.

The Morning Press headline for March

6 trumpeted, “PHILHARMONIC ORCHES-

TRA HERE IN CONCERT.” The writer reported,

“This is a red-letter day in the musical

history of Santa Barbara because the

much-heralded Philharmonic orchestra of

Los Angeles, founded by W.A. Clark, Jr., will

make its initial appearance here this evening

at the Potter theatre…. The orchestra

has been a decided factor in the musical

life of Los Angeles, and judging from the

crowds who have flocked to the concerts,

it is destined to continue many years as an

important item in the artistic circle.”

Rothwell was lauded as a conductor

with a fine inner urge of spirit which flows

through his hands, passes to his musicians,

and carries them along with him on

the wave of his own creative reasoning.

“And how the men respond to this magnificent

leader!” enthused the writer. Concertgoers

were warned that Rothwell would

have the doors close precisely at 8:30 p.m.

out of fairness to those who had made the

40 CAMA'S 101ST CONCERT SEASON


effort to be seated in time to enjoy the entire

performance.

The orchestra was comprised of 89

men and one woman, a harpist, plus the

conductor. The first program ever given in

Santa Barbara was:

Schubert Symphony No. 8 in B

minor (“Unfinished”).

I. Allegro moderato.

II. Andante con moto.

Debussy Two Nocturnes.

Nuages (Clouds).

Fêtes (Festivals).

Wagner Overture to “Tannhäuser”

Intermission.

Liszt Symphonic Poem No. 4 “

Orpheus.”

Lalo Concerto for Violoncello and

Orchestra.

II. Intermezzo. Andante con moto.

III. Rondo. Andante -

Allegro vivace.

Ilya Bronson - cello

Chabrier Rhapsody “España.”

The reviews were highly positive and

resorted to poetic imagery in an attempt

to describe the musical compositions.

The descriptive numbers from Debussy

were exquisitely and colorfully executed,”

wrote the reviewer. “One did not need to

draw heavily upon one’s imagination to

picture fleecy clouds, driving lazily over

the blue of heaven or rolling stormily about

in wind driven banks, for the rendition of

Nuages.” Other movements evoked images

of “fun mad people frolicking about in a

moonlit street” and “laughter floating in

joyful clamor.”

The orchestra was so large, however,

that the Potter Theatre’s stage could

barely hold them. Several members of the

orchestra were not visible as they sat in

the wings. Nevertheless, the Philharmonic

Orchestra of Los Angeles, today known as

the LA Phil, continued to play concerts at

the Potter Theatre until the construction of

the Granada Theatre gave them the space

they needed.

After the concert, the directors of the

orchestra were entertained with a supper

at the Montecito Country Club given by

the directors of the Civic Music Committee.

The next day, Lawrence Adler, director

of the music department at the Deane

School, hosted a luncheon at the exclusive

El Mirasol Hotel for Mr. and Mrs. Rothwell.

With three musical events to its credit and

one to go (a concert of chamber music

by the Flonzaley Quartet on April 10) the

Civic Music Committee had established

itself as a significant force in the musical

life of the city.

Though the work of the Civic Music

Committee was taken over by the Community

Arts Music Branch in 1926, they

had established a long-standing relationship

between Santa Barbara and the

Philharmonic Orchestra of Los Angeles.

March 2020 marks the 100th anniversary

of the LA Phil’s first performance in Santa

Barbara, thanks to the Community Arts

Music Association (CAMA), which has carried

forth the torch that was lit so many

years ago.

Potter Theatre, which stood on the southwest corner of State and Montecito Streets. Courtesy Santa Barbara

Historical Museum

At the beginning of the 20th century, Santa

Barbara’s venerable Lobero Opera House

was outdated and in poor repair. In January

1906, the Morning Press announced that a

group had formed which planned to build a

new, up-to-date theater for Santa Barbara.

They purchased a lot on the southwest

corner of State and Montecito Streets and

agreed to name it the Potter Theatre when

Milo Potter offered to donate a fireproof

asbestos curtain if the theater would be

named after his hostelry. They estimated

construction would cost $75,000.

Santa Barbara watched avidly as a

three-story theater arose on the plot. Large

living suites were built on the second and

third floors above the entrance lobby, a

grocery store opened on one side of the

lobby, and a bar on the other. The granting

of a liquor license for the theater did

not go unopposed, but Joseph A. Raffetto

was able to establish his business by mid-

February 1907.

floor seated 661 and the balcony and gallery

held 514 more. There were large and

airy dressing rooms for performers and a

75-foot tower to hold scenery. Not everyone

was pleased with the drop curtain,

which was painted to include advertisements.

Members of the Women’s Club

and other citizens protested, saying that

a model, up-to-date theater should not be

cheapened in this manner. Some even announced

that they would boycott any business

that advertised on its curtain.

The Potter opened on January 29,

1907 with the musical comedy The Umpire,

which at the time had the prestige of having

had the longest run in the history of

Chicago theater, 350 consecutive nights.

Reviews said the music was catchy, voices

excellent, and costumes effective. Costumes

in the audience took up several inches of

column space as one stunning outfit after

another was meticulously described by the

media. The reporter opined that a crushed

strawberry creation vied with a lavender

chiffon gown trimmed with Irish lace for

best of show.

The second production was The Ham

Tree with 23 speaking parts and nearly 100

members in the cast, which included W.C.

Fields, who, reported the Morning Press,

“has just made a wide reputation as ‘the

tramp juggler’ on the vaudeville stage.”

In 1910, Potter Theatre manager Henriette

Spader introduced a more refined

program of entertainment to the theater

when she established the Philharmonic

Course and Artists Series. Supported

by subscription, the programs brought

world-class music and artists to the

Potter stage. Clara E. Herbert took over in

1914, and by 1921 she was considered the

backbone and leading spirit of the musical

world in Santa Barbara.

In late 1919, another group formed.

The Civic Music Committee intended to

bring the very best in orchestral and classical

music to Santa Barbara. In their first

season of 1919-1920, they brought four

concerts to Santa Barbara, all of which

played at the Potter Theatre. The concert

in March drew the most excitement, for it

was performed by William Andrews Clark,

Jr.’s newly-formed Philharmonic Orchestra

of Los Angeles.

In 1920, the Potter Theatre became

inextricably entwined with the Community

Arts Association, whose initial aim

was to develop local talent in the writing

and acting of plays. Starting with a series

Players (later named the Drama Branch)

were soon producing full-length dramas

as well as extravaganza performances,

like Albert Herter’s 1921 production of

Debussy’s Pelléas and Mélisande, and drawing

rave reviews.

Then, on June 29, 1925 a 6.3 magnitude

earthquake roared through Santa

Barbara, toppling much of its business

district. The Potter Theatre was a complete

loss. With two new theaters completed

the previous year, the new Lobero and

the Granada, it seemed futile to consider

rebuilding. After 18 short years and thousands

of performances on its stage, the

Potter Theatre went dark forever. Today,

the site is obscured by Highway 101 and

the State Street underpass.

48 CAMA'S 101ST CONCERT SEASON


COUNTING CONCERTS

LA Phil has appeared in every CAMA concert season with the following five exceptions:

1932/33, 1933/34, 1942/43, 1996/97, and 1997/98.

However you count it, it's been a lasting relationship that now has nourished the Santa Barbara

community for a century—and we hope many more years—centuries?—to come.

My husband, Denny, and I continue to enjoy

the world’s finest orchestras, conductors and

artists performing right here close to home.
