We want to make sure that our audience feels entirely safe and comfortable coming to our concerts.  Although the prospects for a Christmas concert are uncertain, it is tentatively scheduled in December, subject to Santa Cruz County health guidelines.  We are also hopeful that we will be singing again in May of 2021.

With that in mind those dates would be:
Dec. 19 and 20, 2020, and May 29 and 30, 2021.

Join us for a “Joyful Reunion”, baroque-style!

For the first time ever, two local classical music institutions – the Santa Cruz Baroque Festival and the Santa Cruz Chorale – are joining forces to present a concert that is sure to delight audiences!


Christian Grube, Artistic Director of the Santa Cruz Chorale and Professor Emeritus of the Berlin University of Arts, and Linda Burman-Hall, Artistic Director of the Santa Cruz Baroque Festival and Professor of Music at the University of California, Santa Cruz, have put together an exciting program featuring choir, baroque orchestra, organ, and soloists (Suzanne Duvall, Daniel Plaster, and Paul Murray), with beautiful Holy Cross church as the perfect setting. The program includes Handel’s glorious Chandos Anthem “My song shall be alway”, Bach’s uplifting cantata “For God so loved the world” (sung in German), Purcell’s celebratory “O Sing Unto the Lord”, and Handel’s ever-popular “Organ Concerto in F Major”. 

Get your tickets for this special concert now and join these two ensembles as they celebrate decades of bringing classical music to Central California audiences and beyond!
