Gil Rosas, a pianist for over 40 years, will be returning to Santa Barbara on Saturday.
SANTA BARBARA, CA (Catholic Online) - The entertainer will be returning for a benefit piano concert at the historic Santa Barba Woman's Club, 670 Mission Canyon Road, where he gave his first ever recital.

In 2011, the pianist received an honorary award from the Profant Foundation for his musical contributions to the community.
At 5 p.m., a no-host wine bar and appetizers will be available, followed by a stuffed pork chop dinner at 6 p.m. and Rosas' performance at 7 p.m.
