a new composition by Ēriks Ešenvalds

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of both Cantiamo! Cabrillo and our traditional concert partner,Ensemble Monterey, we have jointly commissioned a major composition for chorus, orchestra, children’s chorus and soloists.

The commissioned composer is Latvian Ēriks Ešenvalds. At the young age of 40 he is one of the most award-winning and sought-after composers working today, and has achieved both fame and overwhelming acclaim in the musical world. The composition is already guaranteed publication and is scheduled for an East Coast premiere in Carnegie Hall later in 2017.  Ēriks Ešenvalds

To add to the celebration we are proud to present a loving memorial to one of our greatest friends and long-time collaborators – the Stephen Tosh Piano Concerto will share the program with our exciting 25th Anniversary premiere.
