You only have less than 5 days to catch some of the “here and now” of contemporary works for Orchestra! The 50th Cabrillo Contemporary Music Festival is here again in Downtown Santa Cruz. Taking place through this upcoming Sunday August 12th, The Cabrillo Music Festival is bringing emerging composers as well as professional musicians and guest artists from across the world. Much of the music is not even one year old! Music critic Allan Ulrich spoke of the festival by saying, “…in the surf mecca of Santa Cruz, 75 miles south of San Francisco, the Cabrillo Festival has made the contemporary repertoire sound urgent, indispensable and even sexy.” So head on down to the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium to hear some fresh, beautiful, and even sexy orchestral pieces! There are even free open rehearsals perfect for dropping by anytime.
