Santa Cruz Series

Experimental music on the Monterey Bay

In September 2015, we produced our first event at Radius Gallery in Santa Cruz. With live acoustics and high ceilings, Radius Gallery was the perfect spot for this eclectic inaugural concert: composers Laura Steenberge and Larry Polansky, LA-based trio Desert Magic, and Santa Cruz-based early music ensemble Apostasy. The response to this event convinced us that we had to keep going.

Since then, we’ve received a grant from the Arts Council of Santa Cruz County to put on a season of concerts. The generosity of individual donors has allowed us to expand our ambitions to more than just a few concerts each year, and most importantly has allowed us to guarantee many touring artists fees for their performances.
