The Carlsbad Music Festival aims to engage and inspire local, national, and international communities of composers, performers, creators, and concert-goers through world-class performances of adventurous music. Founded in 2004 by composer Matt McBane, the Carlsbad Music Festival strives to enhance Carlsbad, California as a cultural center, engaging diverse audiences and providing wide accessibility by integrating events within community spaces. Now in its twelfth season, the Carlsbad Music Festival has achieved a level of artistic integrity and vision that has been praised as “one of the area’s most innovative music showcases” (KPBS, San Diego’s NPR affiliate), “phenomenal” (U-T San Diego), “a starry array of new music specialists” (Alex Ross, The Rest is Noise) and “magnificently enlightening” (Los Angeles Times). In 2010, CMF won ASCAP’s Award for Adventurous Programming.
Tickets can be purchased here. Hope to see you there!
