The world meets at Cabrillo...
From July 28—August 12, 2018, the Cabrillo Festival will celebrate its 56th season as we welcome back Music Director and Conductor Maestro Cristian Măcelaru and the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra. This season, Măcelaru 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. Cabrillo Festival delivers spectacular musicianship, coupled with a warm and welcoming environment for listeners at all levels, plus that famously special Santa Cruz vibe. There are few things more thrilling, and you’re invited to join the fun!
