Santa Cruz Baroque Festival
The Santa Cruz Baroque Festival turns 40 in 2014. The celebration of early classical music features concerts with internationally known artists and their historical instruments. Local musicians also play, and the theme of each concert centers around the time of Bach, Handel, and Vivaldi. The festival extends both geographical and temporal boundaries with its Swedish, Eastern European, and Spanish music concerts, as well as its varying time eras such as medieval and renaissance. Choose from five concerts and three special events or attend them all.
