MEETUP with new music friends! Cabrillo Festival is renowned for its “open atmosphere of collegiality” (composer Brett Dean, 2010). From the pre-concert Dinner on Opening Night to the post-concert Dessert Reception, and between-concert Picnicking at the Mission, you will find countless ways to gather socially with fellow new music fans and artists during the Festival. Check our Calendar for dates, look for details on each concert page and in coming publications, then mix! mingle! MEETUP!
Why go alone? If you are looking for new friends to attend concerts with, you may want to check out Santa Cruz Classical Music Meetup Group on Meetup.com. This informal group has been dining together and attending our Opening Night talk and concert for several years now, and continually welcomes new members! One new participant reports: “This was really fun–a great chance to meet with others and go to a great event I probably wouldn’t have gone to alone.”
