To our beloved audience members and patrons,
Cristi and I and everyone here at Cabrillo Festival are thinking of you all—here in Santa Cruz and across the globe—and hoping that you, your families, and your communities are staying healthy. We know this is a profoundly difficult time for everyone, and our hearts are with each of you and with all of our artists.
At this juncture, Cabrillo Festival is still planning for and moving forward with presenting our 2020 season in August. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation daily, and we acknowledge the uncertainty. We do, however, want you to know that we will make our decisions based on the well-being, health, and safety of our audience, artists, hosts, volunteers, and staff. Until we can plan definitively otherwise, we will continue to ready ourselves for the music to play and the community to meet. The Festival staff is working remotely from home, the Civic Auditorium is closed to the public, but subscriptions may be ordered online anytime or by mail, and donations made via our website. Our 2020 season program and artist bios are available on our website now. Please join our mailing list to receive updates.
As many of you are “sheltering in place” now, we would like to offer some gifts from the Festival Archives for your online enjoyment. We are curating a special collection and will release soon, in the meantime, we hope you will find these uplifting:
The Festival holds out hope that we may prove an antidote to these challenging times, offering powerful music and meaningful connection that will heal our heavy hearts. We promise to update you as the situation unfolds. Again, first and foremost, our thoughts and wishes are with you for your good health.
Stay home. Stay healthy.
On behalf of all of us at Cabrillo Festival,
Ellen M. Primack
