The Carlsbad Music Festival is an annual event that features world-class adventurous performers and composers in the seaside village of Carlsbad. The Festival pushes the boundaries of genre by presenting contemporary classical music along with creative indie-rock, folk, world music and jazz and seeks the points of intersection. In addition, the Festival supports the creation of new music by commissioning works and enabling cross-genre collaborations. The Festival is committed to presenting this work to a wide audience in a manner that integrates itself within community spaces. This commitment is central to our mission to enrich individual lives and community identities through exposure to adventurous arts.
