Musica Pacifica achieved recognition as one of North America's premier baroque ensembles soon after the group's founding in 1990. They have been described by the press as "some of the finest baroque musicians in America" (American Record Guide) and "among the best in the world" (Alte Musik Aktuell). At home in the San Francisco Bay area, the artists perform with Philharmonia Baroque and American Bach Soloists, and they appear with many other prominent early music ensembles nationally and abroad. Musica Pacifica's stylish, high-energy, and virtuoso performances have consistently received enthusiastic reviews from critics and audiences alike.
NVCM has been presenting superb chamber music in San Francisco since 1992.
This concert has been made possible in part thanks to the support of the Grants for the Arts/San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund. Additional support generously provided by Bob & Terri Ryan.
