Thank you for your continuing support of the Baroque Music Festival, Corona del Mar. I am delighted to invite you on behalf of our Board of Directors to be our guest at our annual fall event. Please join us for a virtual Fall Gathering, to be held live online on Wednesday, October 14th from 7:00 pm.
This year’s event will look a little different to prior years, but the intent is primarily the same: to gather with you—our loyal BMF supporters—to express our thanks; for you to meet and socialize with each other; and for you to hear words and music from the festival’s artistic director, Elizabeth Blumenstock.
There will be lots of music! Elizabeth will be joined by long-time colleague and friend Mary Springfels (who last appeared at the festival in our 2018 “Wednesday Gardens” concert) in 17th- and early 18th-century repertoire by J.S. Bach, Johann Schop, Matthew Locke, and Joseph Bodin de Boismortier, performed on violin and viola da gamba.
