We have just wrapped a fabulous 2015 season! The Financial Times said it best:
“In her 24 years at the helm, Marin Alsop has brought both cohesion and a rationale to northern California’s oldest contemporary music festival. Those qualities, plus a trio of recent and appealing orchestral essays, pervaded the opening concert of the 53-year-old celebration Friday evening. Not only has the conductor established ongoing relationships with composers of all ages, she remains fiercely loyal to many of them. The festival orchestra, recruited annually from around the globe, demonstrates a comparable fealty to Alsop. Performances here often burn with conviction.”
Thank you for your participation as an artist, audience member, volunteer, or donor, and even far-away friend. We offer heartfelt thanks for your passionate support of new music and for this Festival.
