SBMC members receive a monthly newsletter containing information on upcoming SBMC Faulkner Series and Community Series concerts, workshop schedules, and articles of interest to members, as well as news of other musical events in the Santa Barbara area. 


SBMC members receive an annual yearbook containing a membership directory, schedule of programs presented during the year, and listing of donors. In addition to the alphabetical member listing, the directory also lists scholarship winners, and performing members by instrument/voice and teaching specialty.
