In the Elizabethan court, the Lord Chamberlain was responsible for the patronage of local artists.  One of the companies Shakespeare wrote for was the Lord Chamberlain's Men.  In keeping with tradition, our Court of the Lord Chamberlain is recognition for members of our community that have made a significant contribution to the arts in Santa Clarita, and to our organization.  New members are inducted each summer during the preview of the LA SummerFEST.  The event is a fundraiser our free festival and our educational programs.
