Our Festival offers five professional concerts over eight days in the second half of June. We enjoy the talents of extraordinary musicians playing Baroque instruments, and of singers who are sensitive to historical styles, performing in intimate venues in Corona del Mar and Newport Beach.
The Festival strives to present the astounding wealth and diversity of music of the Baroque era (c. 1600-1750) in a wide variety of ways, at affordable prices. Large-scale works, with and without singers, are typically offered on our Sunday concerts, while during the weekday evenings between you will hear smaller scale vocal and chamber performances, all given by the finest musicians in the historically informed Baroque field. We are proud to be a community festival and welcome you to our community. Socialize with our musicians over “wine and waters” following our Sunday afternoon and Monday evening concerts, and join us in our lovely and varied venues, which include the beautiful Sherman Gardens in the heart of Corona del Mar.

In addition to complete program and performer information, our printed program booklet each year features ads from many local businesses. We are enormously grateful to all of them for their generous support and encourage you to support them in turn.
We look forward to seeing you at our concerts, whether for the hundredth or the very first time.
