We had a problem with a recent open console, which
was greatly attended (thanks to a wonderful Santa Barbara News Press
article). Unfortunately, guests wandered outside the area of the
organ console, principally backstage, the dressing rooms, the lobby,
and the balcony. This intrusion strained our relationship with
the theatre. If you attend the open console, please stay near the
area of the organ console and theatre seats, or accompany an SBTOS
member for a chamber tour.
Arlington Theatre is located at 1317 State Street between Victoria and
newest CD: Dancing in the Dark, as well as "I Remember
You" and our Christmas CD
"Christmas at the Arlington" with Scott Foppiano will be available then
also. We can also play a selection or two on the organ.
