J.D. Vance - Hillbilly Elegy: A Culture in Crisis
J.D. Vance ... Author of the gripping memoir Hillbilly Elegy, J.D. Vance became “the voice of the Rust Belt” (The Washington Post) when his book exploded into the national political conversation during the last presidential election campaign. A proud product of Appalachia and Ohio, Vance made his way from the Marines to Yale Law School and into the Bay Area tech world. With a rare insider’s perspective from an often-forgotten corner of the country, Vance offers a powerful examination of how social policies and other factors affect some of the poorest communities in the U.S., providing a unique picture of the loss of the American dream and fascinating insight into how downward mobility really feels. -- $11 - $39

Joe Biden
Joe Biden ... Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., represented Delaware for 36 years in the U.S. Senate before becoming the 47th Vice President of the United States. In this role, Biden continued his leadership on important issues facing the nation and represented our country abroad. Vice President Biden convened sessions of the President’s Cabinet, led interagency efforts, provided unyielding support for our troops, a fairer judicial system, and a smarter foreign policy. He worked with Congress in his fight for a stronger middle class, address violence against women, and end cancer as we know it. With his charm, candor, unabashed optimism and deep and abiding patriotism, Biden has garnered the respect and esteem of colleagues of both parties and the friendship of people around the world. Last year, he established the National Cancer Moonshot.

Israel Philharmonic Orchestra
Zubin Mehta, Music Director and Conductor ... One of Israel’s oldest and most influential cultural institutions, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1936 as an “orchestra of soloists,” made up of first-chair Jewish European musicians who had lost their positions. Since 1977, it has been under the direction of Zubin Mehta, “at the top of the conducting profession for nearly half a century” (Opera magazine). Throughout their nearly-unprecedented relationship, they have performed thousands of concerts across five continents. Dubbed the IPO’s music director for life, the “lightning conductor” (The Independent, U.K.) Mehta will retire from his role with the orchestra in 2019, 50 years after his debut. This performance brings the illustrious IPO to Santa Barbara for the first time, offering a program that features masterpieces by Mozart and Schubert. -- $28 - $153
