  • Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium 307 Church Street Santa Cruz, CA, 95060 United States (map)

Beethoven's breathtakingly beautiful Mass in C is a rarely performed gem, and will feature a quartet of Metropolitan Opera Stars, as well as the beloved Cabrillo Symphonic Chorus.

Our final program of the season begins with Esa-Pekka Salonen's endlessly inventive Karawane (2014), a riotously playful oratorio for chorus and orchestra, based on a poem of the same title by Dada founder Hugo Ball.
