2017 Donors Concert

In 2017, Maestro Cristi Macelaru’s inaugural year, we held our second annual pre-season Donors Concert at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium. The concert was extra special, for, alongside the incredible musicianship of the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra players, Cristi himself performed on solo violin as his first act on the Festival stage! The concert is offered in two short sections, with a slideshow below of photos by RR Jones.
