Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music

Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music

Each summer Cabrillo Festival brings together music lovers, community members, professional orchestra players and extraordinary composers for an inspired gathering that offers a musical experience like no other. This season, Music Director Cristi Macelaru summons voices from around the globe and across diverse cultural backgrounds to present 18 contemporary works that reflect the human spirit and the stories we tell, the grandeur of the planet, and the vastness of the cosmos. See individual listings.


This is what SF/Arts curator Laura Fraenza has to say about Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music :

Santa Cruz is home to the country’s longest-running showcase of new orchestral music. With premieres by composers from here and the U.K., Romania, Korea and beyond, the 56th Cabrillo Festival also features a record number of female composers and artists-in-residence, all directed by the esteemed Cristian Macelaru.
