Măcelaru’s also revamping the festival’s family concerts, “It’s something that hasn’t been a big focus in recent years, so I’m trying to encourage composers to write more for them,” he said, “My 6-year-old son just asked me if composers are still alive, ballet slippers machine embroidery applique design-4x4,5x5, 6x6 inch Kids are interested in this question, and they love new things.” In addition to conducting duties this summer, Măcelaru will serve as narrator for Gandolfi’s family-friendly “Pinocchio’s Adventures in Funland.”, Born in Romania, Măcelaru trained as a violinist; while still in his teens, he became the youngest concertmaster in the history of the Miami Symphony Orchestra, Playing violin “was a beautiful part of my life, and I still love playing,” he says, “It just wasn’t enough, When you play in an orchestra, you never get to decide the music that’s being performed, There was so much repertoire I was interested in.” He made the transition to conducting, coming to prominence as the winner of the 2014 Solti conducting award, He still plays – he’ll perform in Cabrillo’s Aug, 9 fundraiser – but conducting is his passion..

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love in San Francisco. Trey McIntyre’s new work, “Be Here Now,” evokes the feelings of community and naiveté of that time, in sharp contrast to the backdrop of the still-fresh Cuban missile crisis, political assassinations, the Vietnam War, civil rights struggles, and general social upheaval. Billed by the company as “an energetic exploration of dance and the creative process,” “Be Here Now” premiered during the opening night of Smuin’s Dance Series 02 in Mountain View, on May 5.
