The San Francisco Classical Voice has this week released its 2019 SFCV Summer Music Festival Guide featuring the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music.

The SFCV writes: “Cristian Măcelaru returns for his third season as music director and brings with him a jam-packed roster of guest artists. As always, living composers take on an especially prominent role; the festival features one of the highest concentrations of composers-in-residence per square foot known to man and music-kind.

Fourteen composers are featured, including Anna Clyne, Du Yun, Jake Heggie, Tan Dun, Caroline Shaw, and Wynton Marsalis — most in residence. Premieres of every kind — world, U.S., and West Coast — abound. This year’s guest artists are Jamie Barton, Roomful of Teeth, Megan Levad, Inbal Segev, Clarice Assad, Sarah Fuller, and Nicola Benedetti.

On the educational front, the festival continues its tradition of hosting open rehearsals, panel discussions, pre-concert talks, and its flagship Conductors/Composers Workshop, a training program focused on the creation and performance of new music by young professionals.

Festival tickets range from $30–$67, with several events free and open to the public. Mainstage concerts are held at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium.”
