Isabel Leonard with Michael Feinstein

On Saturday, June 4, the Music Academy of the West is hosting its black-tie opening night gala to celebrate the beginning of the 2016 summer school and festival as well as the grand opening of the recently renovated Marilyn Horne Main House. At the event, guests can look forward to enjoying a reception, performance at Hahn Hall, an alfresco dinner in the Miraflores courtyard, and a strolling dessert with a champagne toast inside the newly opened Marilyn Horne Main House. Topping off the evening is a performance by Grammy Award-winning opera singer Isabel Leonard. Chaired by local philanthropist Sharon Bradford, the elegant concert and dinner will be a night to remember. All proceeds from the fund-raiser will go toward the full-scholarship program, which allows 140 fellows from around the world to study with the world-class faculty and Santa Barbara guest artists. –Courtney Jones
