Cal Performances 2018–19 Season Announcement
On Tuesday, April 17, 2018, Cal Performances' board of trustees co-chairs Helen Meyer and Susan L. Graham, and executive and artistic director Matías Tarnopolsky, announced the 2018–19 season, the final season curated by Tarnopolsky before he departs to become CEO and president of the Philadelphia Orchestra Association. Conceived around Cal Performances' Berkeley RADICAL programming initiative, now entering its fourth year, the 2018–19 season will explore two key themes: Citizenship and Women's Work. Under the banner of Berkeley RADICAL, artists, curators, UC Berkeley faculty, and other noted figures come together to create imaginative, immersive programs that enhance the creation, commissioning, and presentation mission of Cal Performances. One of the initiative's key goals is to increase artistic literacy for the next generation and beyond.
