Since its founding in 1990, Musica Pacifica has become widely recognized as one of America’s premier baroque ensembles, lauded for both the dazzling virtuosity and the warm expressiveness of its performances. Described as “some of the finest baroque musicians in America” (American Record Guide) and “among the best in the world” (Alte Musik Aktuell), the ensemble is based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Its members perform with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and American Bach Soloists as well as with numerous other prominent early music ensembles nationally and abroad. Musica Pacifica brings its lush period sound to the splendor of Kohl Mansion for our traditional Gala Holiday Concert. This non-subscription concert benefits Kohl for Kids programs, serving 5,000+ children and youth annually.
