"After 27 years of spirited and exuberant performances, Musica Pacifica will see a “changing of the guard,” as Elizabeth Blumenstock, one of the ensemble's founding members, has announced her retirement from the group. ...

Ever ready to celebrate, Musica Pacifica is gearing up to fête Ms. Blumenstock’s illustrious career with the ensemble, and to welcome the widely acclaimed Ingrid Matthews as our new violinist!

This fall is your last chance to experience, live and in person, the brilliant musical chemistry between Elizabeth Blumenstock, baroque violin, and Judith Linsenberg, recorder. And your first chance to hear the dazzling and vibrant playing of Ingrid Matthews added to the Musica Pacifica mix!

Only one Musica Pacifica performance with Elizabeth Blumenstock remains: 

Saturday, December 16th, 2017, 6 PM, El Cerrito, CA. We've Got Your Bach—works by JS Bach and his contemporaries, including Telemann, Handel, Pachelbel, Purcell, and others.

Enjoy delicious snacks, gorgeous music, an incredible view, and a champagne welcome for Ingrid and send-off for Elizabeth.

This concert is free for anyone 18 or younger -- the perfect way to introduce your younger loved ones to the delights of Baroque music!

Visit the Musica Pacifica website for more information of the concert event celebration. All of the best of wishes to Ms. Blumenstock from EarlyMusicNews.org!
