Festival Detail

Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary MusicMusic

During the first two weeks of August each year, audiences are joined by both preeminent and emerging composers, an orchestra of dedicated professional musicians led by famed conductor Marin Alsop, and renowned guest artists from across the globe to give voice to works which are rarely more than a year or two old, and sometimes still wet on the page. The opportunity for composers to work with Maestra Alsop and musicians skilled and enthusiastic about bringing these new works to life in the beautiful coastal, college town of Santa Cruz (and other venues like San Juan Bautista) makes this an artistic paradise.
