2016 Season Preview

WELCOME  •  2016 SEASON  •  PRESS RELEASE  •  ABOUT CORONA DEL MAR
 
 

Each concert performance is preceded by live brass music al fresco, as seen here at the Sherman Library & Gardens, where concert-goers enjoy strolling through the grounds.

   

The Festival’s 36th annual season (June 19–26, 2016) will take us to the British Isles. In our traditional five concerts arranged over a full week, we will celebrate the many ways the Baroque era flourished in music throughout the United Kingdom.

We will begin with our long-customary opening Sunday afternoon program of Baroque instrumental concertos, this year focusing on works by Johann Christian Bach (“the English Bach”) and other composers of North Germany who took England by storm. On Monday we will present “An Evening in Britain,” an intimate recital of music for harp and voice featuring traditional ballads, followed by British-themed chamber concerts on Wednesday and Friday nights in the Sherman Library and Gardens. The following Sunday afternoon we will conclude with our ever-popular Festival Finale for soloists and orchestra, which this year will be a full concert performance of Purcell’s dramatic opera King Arthur to mark this milestone work’s 325th anniversary.

Please save the dates of June 19–26, 2016 and plan to join us for an exciting week of inspiring music, presented in local venues and featuring a wide variety of orchestral, instrumental and vocal works.
