Baroque Music Festival, Corona Del Mar

Baroque Music Festival, Corona Del Mar

Welcome to the Baroque Music Festival, Corona del Mar: an annual celebration of Baroque music held in Orange County, California. Our homecoming 42nd season, June 19-26, marks the Festival’s long-awaited return to live public concerts and features music by Baroque masters JS Bach, Handel, Telemann and others. We will enjoy the talents of extraordinary musicians playing Baroque instruments, and of internationally renowned singers who are sensitive to historical styles, performing in beautiful intimate venues in Corona del Mar and Newport Beach, including Sherman Gardens and local churches.

Our Festival mission is to present the astounding wealth and diversity of the Baroque era in a wide variety of ways. Large-scale works, with and without singers, are offered on our Sunday concerts, while our three mid-week programs give the opportunity to enjoy smaller scale vocal and chamber music performances, all given by the finest musicians in the historically-informed Baroque field.

We are proud to be a community festival and we welcome you to our community. We offer the chance to socialize with our musicians over “wine and waters” following each of our concerts.

We look forward to seeing you at our concerts, whether for the hundredth or the very first time!
