Cabrillo Music Festival Community Night

August 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm  |  Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium


The Humanities Institute is excited to announce a new public partnership with the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music. THI will serve as a sponsor of the Festival’s new Community Night event on August 9, 2018. Community Night will include a dynamic short concert of chamber works performed by members of the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra designed for new listeners. The program includes fan favorites from recent seasons plus a few surprises – all led by conductor Cristi Măcelaru.

To celebrate this new partnership, THI will make 100 free tickets available for Community Night. The first 50 people to request tickets through this online form will receive 2 free tickets.

“THI and the Cabrillo Festival share a deep commitment to telling stories that reflect diverse cultural backgrounds and speak to the human spirit. We’re honored to be part of the community they have cultivated for more than 50 years,” says Irena Polic, THI Managing Director.

The annual music festival serves as a celebration of music and community, bringing together players, composers and music lovers for two weeks of contemporary musical performances.

“The Festival’s rich tradition of showcasing new and experimental music embodies our goal of making culture accessible and meaningful to everyone in our community,” says Polic. “We’re proud to be a co-sponsor of Community Night and look forward to rolling out additional programming connected to the festival in the years ahead.”

The Cabrillo Festival runs from July 29 through August 12 and tickets are now on sale.
