From July 8 through 22, 2017, music lovers will have the opportunity to enjoy a smörgåsbord of some of the world’s greatest music. Performances this year will include over two dozen concerts from blues to bluegrass, symphonies to opera, and jazz to Celtic and African. This year’s operatic offering will be the well-loved opera buffa, or comedic opera, Don Pasquale by Gaetano Donizetti. There will also be an array of presentations focusing on Franz Schubert, including chamber music by him.
You’ll also be able to treat yourself to the beautiful, pure tones of Kathleen Grace’s remarkable vocals, or if something a little snappier is more your cup of tea, you can rock out to the foot-stomping zydeco sounds of the Pine Leaf Boys. Check the Mendocino Music Festival website for the rest of the festival’s many acts, as well as schedules and ticket information. Concerts will be held in the charming Tent Concert Hall at Mendocino Headlands State Park and at several smaller venues around town.
