Special thanks to our Community Night sponsors:
Community Night is back by popular demand! Last season Cabrillo Festival and Music Director Cristi Măcelaru opened our doors in a whole new way and attracted capacity crowds and wild enthusiasm! This year Cristi and members of the Festival Orchestra have designed another captivating concert of new or recent chamber works showcasing these extraordinary musicians as soloists and in small ensembles. This is an invitation for long time Festival-goers and first-timers alike to get a more intimate perspective on the talented artists who come from across the globe to be a part of this phenomenal orchestra. Bring your neighbors! Bring your friends! All seating is general admission. Tickets are required, but pricing is on a pay-what-you-can basis to ensure access for all. It’s going to be another high-spirited evening of live music—complete with special surprises!
