WELCOME TO OUR 2020 VIRTUAL SEASON!
Cabrillo Festival invites you to join our global community of composers, musicians, and creators as we pivot to a completely new experience…a virtual 2020 season! Led by 2020 Grammy Award-winning Music Director and Conductor Cristian Măcelaru, Cabrillo Festival remains all about “music of our time, for our time.” It is our aim to capture some of that famous Festival magic—a sense of gathering and discovery—as we present a special mix of archival recordings; intimate, behind-the-scenes conversations; and brand-new musical adventures for you to enjoy. Over two full weeks we’ll explore bold ideas in music, culture, and society, culminating with a world premiere orchestral commission, featuring members of the award-winning Cabrillo Festival Orchestra recorded from their homes around the world. Following each premiere, you will be free to watch again at your leisure. So please sit back and enjoy, and share these treasures with your friends and family!
“Despite the distance, the Festival Orchestra and I feel so profoundly connected to our Cabrillo family and so committed to the Festival. We all wanted and needed to make music together, to connect in meaningful ways, and to offer gifts of music and conversation that will be a source of healing and hope.” —Cristian Macelaru
