Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music

July 28-August 12, 2012

“The nation’s pre-eminent event celebrating living composers and new works.” —San Jose Mercury News

When famed Mexican composer Carlos Chávez wrote the Festival’s first-ever commission in 1969, he titled it Discovery. Nothing could have been more apt for Cabrillo. As the Festival turns 50 this season, that sense of discovery is stronger than ever. Maestra Marin Alsop has programmed an amazing 2012 line-up that includes an added weekend, six world premieres, three West Coast premieres, fourteen composers-in-residence, and two anniversary tributes! At the half-century mark, Cabrillo is ready to explore new orchestral voices for the next half-century and beyond. We invite you to join us on a journey to new places, new ideas, new ways of looking at not just music, but life!

Single tickets go on sale Tuesday, June 12 at Noon. No children under age six will be admitted to concerts, with the exception of the Free Family Concert.
