The Cabrillo Festival Orchestra performs more new music in one place at one time than anywhere else in the world. The orchestra won the League of American Orchestras and the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) 2008–09 John S. Edwards Award for Strongest Commitment to New American Music, and their Award for Adventurous Programming of Contemporary Music for 32 consecutive years.

Cabrillo Festival has been critically acclaimed by The New York Times, and the Festival Orchestra is distinctive in its commitment to performing only the works of living composers. Most of the season’s featured composers are in residence for the presentation of five orchestral programs including multiple world and US premieres. The ensemble is comprised of professional musicians from across the globe who journey to Santa Cruz, California each summer for this unique musical experience. Marin Alsop led the Festival Orchestra as music director and conductor from 1992–2016, succeeded by Cristian Măcelaru.
