240 STUDIO welcomes the Music Academy of the West!

We recently had the pleasure of photographing two insanely talented musicians.  Our new friends, John Brancy (Baritone) and Mario Antonio Marra (pianist), were the winners of the MAW’s Marilyn Horne annual song competition 2013 and came to 240 STUDIO to document their amazing accomplishment. 

If you caught the The Magic Flute at the Granada Theater in August, then you saw Brancy in all his glory.  He was the fantastic Papageno in the Music Academy’s performance of The Magic Flute!

The Santa Barbara Independent raved about the production.  “As performed by the fellows of the Music Academy of the West last Friday at the Granada Theatre, the Flute cast its spell and demonstrated that for sheer musical invention, Mozart has never been surpassed.”

We had a great time in the Studio with John and Mario!  Both guys were fantastic and fun to work with.   We congratulate them on all of their hard work and hope they come back and visit us at 240 STUDIO soon!
