Les Miserables by PCPAWhile the Santa Maria Valley is perhaps most renowned for its abundance of great barbecue and fine wine, the region is also home to a vibrant arts scene as well.

Indeed, in a recent press release, the California Travel & Tourism Commission notes that “musical theater meets wine country ambiance at the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts (PCPA) in the Santa Maria Valley.” The California Travel & Tourism Commission also observes that “even the area’s wine caves resonate with music as the Santa Maria Philharmonic Society is offering a special ‘concert in the caves’ performance May 23 at Cottonwood Canyon Vineyard.”

Upcoming PCPA performances include Les Miserables (pictured here) from now through July 12 and the Music Man from July 17 through August 23. Visit the PCPA web site for more information. Click here and here for more information on experiencing the arts in the Santa Maria Valley.
