The Women's Auxiliary actively supports the Music Academy in numerous ways.
Year-round this volunteer organization supports The Rack, a resale clothing shop, and the Treasure House, a shop for quality antiques and home furnishings. The Auxiliary also organizes May Madness, an annual treasure and estate sale that has been a Santa Barbara tradition for more than 35 years. Sales proceeds benefit the Music Academy.
During the Summer Festival, Auxiliary members serve as volunteer ushers for selected masterclasses.
