About Santa Cruz Baroque Festival
Our mission is to present an annual season of early music as it sounded in its own time. We aim for artistic excellence while transmitting the joy of Baroque music to the community and to future generations by engaging our audience in an expedition through musical time.
Santa Cruz Baroque Festival envisions a community where all people have experienced the joy of music, and can understand the legacy and value of early chamber music in which a player traditionally creates a unique performance by structured improvisation.
Santa Cruz Baroque Festival Core Values & Principles
• We present artistically excellent performances that are emotionally expressive, with chamber music performed in the improvisatory style in fashion when the music was new.
• We engage in education to audiences of all ages through our pre- concert talks, our concert notes, radio broadcasts, the ‘See Things in Context’ on our website, and in 2020, free weekly video live casts. Currently, we’re featured on KSQD’s Community Concert Hall.
• We engage in Youth Outreach and education through our Youth Chamber Music Competition, our Emerging Artist Showcase, our bilingual videos (in preparation), and our artists in classrooms.
Thank you for taking this journey with us!
Planning for Santa Cruz Baroque Festival's 49th Season, from February - April 2022, is underway. As always, five concerts will be presented, revolving around a central theme, each with musicians of excellent caliber and a program designed to edify and delight. While we hash out the fine details, we are offering season tickets at 2019 prices. Prices will go up sometime in the fall.
Dates and time of day are as follows:
I. Saturday 5 February, evening
II. Sunday 27 February, afternoon
III. Sunday 20 March, afternoon
IV. Sunday 10 April, afternoon

In addition to a seat at each of the five concerts, season ticket holders are invited to a reception at the first and last concerts, at which you can socialize with the musicians and with Baroque Festival personnel.
