Assigned Seating

Violinist Leila Josefowicz captivates audiences with her technically precise and emotionally resonant performances. One of today’s preeminent soloists, she performs with the world’s most prestigious orchestras and conductors such as the Berlin and New York Philharmonics and Royal Concertgebouw. With a “ferocious technical command and commitment that are uniquely hers” (Chicago Tribune), the MacArthur Fellow makes her Santa Barbara recital debut with a diverse program that underscores her virtuosic skills.

“She is the Wonder Woman of violinists, physically able to respond to whatever is thrown at her but also temperamentally and theatrically transformative.” – Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
