Welcome to the Baroque Music Festival, Corona del Mar, California. Founded in 1981, our yearly Festival presents five concerts over eight days in late June. This easy-to-navigate site provides information about our upcoming Festival concerts, complete with online program notes, soloist photos and biographies, ticket and venue information, contact information, and more.
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 solo recitals and chamber music, all performed by the finest musicians in the historically informed Baroque field.
We are proud to be a community festival and welcome you to our community. We offer the chance to socialize over “wine and waters” following each of our concerts, and also take pride 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 features ads from many local businesses. We are enormously grateful to all of them for their generous support.
We look forward to seeing you at our concerts, whether for the hundredth or very first time.
— Elizabeth Blumenstock, Artistic Director
and the Festival Board of Directors

Timothy Landauer, a beloved cellist long affiliated with the Baroque Music Festival, Corona del Mar, died in April after a lengthy struggle with cancer. All of us will miss his gorgeous sound, his amazing technical proficiency, and his warm friendship.
