A big, bold, women-centric season is testament to Music Director and Conductor Cristian Măcelaru’s conviction that music should reflect the world around us, and ignite our social conscience and our imaginations. From a brand new work about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, to a cello concerto inspired by Rumi, to a multimedia piece about a secret women’s language from 13th century Hunan province, to Wynton Marsalis’s epic symphonic journey through African-American music history, each evening’s program will spark excitement and conversation. Twelve of our 14 composers will be in residence, and a super-star line-up of soloists will join the incredible Festival Orchestra under Maestro Măcelaru to bring the music of our time to spectacular realization. The ‘special sauce’ at the Cabrillo Festival is always our audience! Don’t be left out of a blockbuster season, plan now to attend this summer.
