2017 Season Preview

WELCOME  •  2017 SEASON  •  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 37th annual season (June 18–25, 2017) will be a “Festival of Novelties.” In our traditional five concerts arranged over a full week, we will combine the Festival’s celebrated excellence in Baroque period performance with delightfully new and different approaches to programming.

We will begin with our long-customary opening Sunday afternoon program of Baroque instrumental concertos, this year with a demonstration of fencing set to music. On Monday we will present “Four Viols at Play,” an intimate recital of 17th-century English music performed by a quartet of violas da gamba. On Wednesday we move to the Sherman Library and Gardens for “Music from Monticello,” a journey through Thomas Jefferson’s musical library accompanied by readings. We remain at the Sherman Library and Gardens for Friday evening’s “Beyond Baroque,” an exploration of early music from Mozart and Haydn. The following Sunday afternoon we will conclude with our ever-popular Festival Finale for soloists and orchestra, which this year will feature performances of majestic early Italian music by Gabrieli and Monteverdi, presented in collaboration with the Los Angeles–based Baroque ensemble Tesserae.

Please save the dates of June 18–25, 2017 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.
