Performing Arts Monterey Bay is dedicated to the memory of Albert M. Eisner whose original vision our website represents.


SCOTT MacCLELLAND, editor, has been active in Monterey Bay Area performing arts journalism since 1977. During the same period he has taught classes in music history and appreciation for Monterey Peninsula College, Hartnell College, Carmel Adult School and the Carmel Foundation. In 1973, he designed and implemented the Monterey Symphony’s in-school program, introducing orchestra musicians to all fourth and fifth graders in public elementary schools throughout Monterey County. He was a leader in founding the Youth Orchestra of Monterey County and a founding board member of its successor, Youth Music Monterey County. Currently, he is program annotator for the Carmel Music Society.
