About A Collective Sound

A Collective Sound is a student music and art showcase at the Sandbox Santa Barbara (414 Olive Street). 

 

On June 1, 2018, students from all around Santa Barbara had the opportunity to enjoy music and art by local teenagers. We heard music of all genres, from rock to jazz, all played by student artists. See the musicians and artists below.
