And we now have a date for our June Berkeley Festival performance:


Friday, June 10, 12:00 noon. Berkleley Festival Fringe: Parish Hall of St. Mark's Episcopal Church, 2300 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, CA. "Dolci di Napoli – Concertos and Sonatas from Baroque Naples."

In this program of music from Baroque Naples, you’ll hear rarely-performed chamber concertos for recorder, two violins, and continuo by Nicola Fiorenza, Alessandro Scarlatti, Francesco Mancini, and Francesco Barbella, some of which can be heard on Musica Pacifica’s award-winning CDs of this music.

But this June concert will include different and even more rarely-heard pieces! Musica Pacifica will be joined by the amazing harpsichordist, Ignacio Prego, who will also perform a virtuosic sonata by Domenico Scarlatti, as well as by Bay Area favorites Kati Kyme, violin, and William Skeen, cello.

 Tickets available at the door. Click here for more information!

With love from your friends at Musica Pacifica.
