Barnes is a Tri-Valley Hero: Music director emeritus Art Barnes was named the 2014 Tri-Valley Hero in Arts and Culture by the East Bay Division of Embarcadero Media. The awards presentation at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Pleasanton on October 20, 2014, had a nice touch: Barnes received his engraved trophy from the hand of Bob Williams, Barnes’ friend and longtime assistant conductor.
