The Cabrillo Festival on KALW!
KALW is proud to be the broadcast partner for the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music’s 2016 season, and to present the complete orchestra concert broadcasts in four special programs hosted by Sarah Cahill, host of Revolutions Per Minute.
The Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music is all about the new — the here and now of contemporary works for orchestra. During the first two weeks of August each year, audiences in Santa Cruz are joined by both preeminent and emerging composers, an orchestra of dedicated professional musicians led by famed conductor Marin Alsop, and renowned guest artists from across the globe to give voice to works which are rarely more than a year or two old, and sometimes still wet on the page.
