Hello to all our Cabrillo Festival friends!
Since my appointment as new music director last fall, it has been my honor (and a special challenge!) to build a first season that reflects not just my musical interests and passions, but also stays the course long charted by the Festival—to present art of the highest quality that inspires introspection and dialogue on subjects relevant to today’s audiences. I am beyond thrilled to share the details of my first Festival program with you today!
Please allow me to introduce the season to you with this short video, note the important dates below, and click here to read our press release all about the 2017 season. There will be so many more details to come, including artist biographies and program notes. So stay in touch!
I can’t wait to join you in Santa Cruz this summer, until then I send all my best wishes~
