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 presents the beauty and variety of music of the Baroque era (c. 1600-1750) through professional performances at affordable prices. Larger-scale works, with and without singers, are offered on our Sunday afternoon programs, while during the weekday evenings between you will hear smaller scale vocal and chamber works. All concerts are given by artists specializing in historically-informed Baroque performance techniques.
We are proud to be a community festival and welcome you to our community. Socialize with our musicians over “wine and waters” following the Sunday afternoon and Monday evening concerts; learn more about this wonderfully uplifting music from artistic director Elizabeth Blumenstock’s program notes and in-concert introductions; 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.
