Music Director Cristian Măcelaru joins Music Director Laureate Marin Alsop in a warm and lively conversation that touches upon matters of diversity in the symphonic field, the importance of mentoring young conductors, composer Christopher Rouse’s music, the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra, and much, much more. Then composer Anna Clyne introduces her work, RIFT: a symphonic ballet commissioned in 2016 by the Festival for Marin Alsop’s 25th and final season as Music Director. Created in collaboration with choreographer Kitty McNamee, Clyne’s music is brought to life by the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra and six stunning dancers in a performance that speaks with power and grace about the times in which we live.
