Led by Maestro Cristian Macelaru, the Cabrillo Conductors/Composers Workshop brings together leading faculty, the award-winning Cabrillo Festival Orchestra, and early career conductors and composers for a professional training program which focuses on the creation and performance of new music. The five-day program is held in downtown Santa Cruz, California, and involves 3 selected composers, 6 fellows, 6 associates, and 8 auditing conductors. Selected composers will have their work conducted by participating conductors, under the direction of Cristian Macelaru, and performed by members of the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra. Three dedicated rehearsals will take place, culminating with an "In the Works" concert where each piece will receive two or three performances. Composers will receive recordings from the final concert. Composition faculty, Kristin Kuster, will offer guidance and seminars throughout, other Festival composers-in-residence (to be announced) will participate, and direct feedback will be offered from the players and conductors.
