Music Director and Conductor Cristian Macelaru describes the intention behind his inaugural season at the helm of the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music. Macelaru's 2017 season includes works by 15 living composers, 11 of whom will be in residence, including Karim Al-Zand, Clarice Assad, Jake Heggie, Aaron Jay Kernis, David T. Little, and Cindy McTee. Guest artists include bass-baritone Jonathan Lemalu, percussionist Evelyn Glennie, pianist Jason Hardink, and violinist Jennifer Frautschi. The 55-year-old festival, hailed as a "new music mecca" by the New York Times, is held for two weeks each August in the charming coastal college town of Santa Cruz, California.
