Music by Women at the Cabrillo Festival

The annual Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, held in Santa Cruz, California, has a history of highlighting music by women. This is due in part to the festival focusing on living composers – however, I suspect that it is in part a happy consequence of the programming of music director and conductor Marin Alsop.

Here is a video where she describes the process of programming the Cabrillo Festival:

For the 2011 season, Cabrillo will have fifteen composers in residence – including six women.

  • Margaret Brouwer
  • Chiayu
  • Anna Clyne
  • Tina Davidson
  • Zosha di Castri
  • Elena Kats-Chernin
