The 56th season of the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, its second under Music Director Cristian Măcelaru, is set and as usual, the net is cast wide. Seventeen composers will show up in Santa Cruz the first week of August. They include 80-year-old William Bolcom, who made his first appearance at Cabrillo in 1976 and fellow octogenarian John Corigliano, who will hear Philip Edward Fisher play the Piano Concerto (1968).
Longtime readers of SFCV may have noticed that SFCV has increased the scope of its coverage this year. We have added more coverage of Los Angeles (and will be adding to that) with longtime L.A. journalists Jim Farber and Richard Ginell. And we’ve expanded our coverage of the Bay Area jazz scene with Andrew Gilbert joining in, as well as longtime SFCV jazz enthusiast Jeff Kaliss. We hope to keep that initiative growing as well.
The Los Angeles Philharmonic continues to forge ahead, announcing a centennial season program that is more visionary than any other orchestra in the U.S. If the followers are going to catch up, they have a lot of ground to cover. The headline events of the season announced last week are varied and involve a variety of L.A. artists.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
