The 57th annual Cabrillo Festival in Santa Cruz: As America’s foremost celebration of contemporary symphonic music, the mission of the festival is to re-imagine the orchestral experience by advancing music and developing audiences for the 21st century. This year, the festival features a free concert of new works by emerging artists on July 28; a night with Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth (August 4) and a night dedicated to Wynton Marsalis (August 11). KALW's Sarah Cahill will host the station's annual broadcasts of the festival in August.
