Participants can tour the five homes in any order and at their own pace between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., and learn about each location’s historic elements from on-site docents as well as enjoy baroque and classical music from Carmel Bach Festival’s young musicians.
“The ‘Cottages, Gardens & Cantatas’ event is a beautiful way to experience the rich culture of Carmel, which has long been a destination for artists of all backgrounds from the world of art, music and performance,” said Gail Dryden, chair of the event and a member of Carmel Bach Festival’s Board of Directors. “This event was envisioned last year as an opportunity to meld our love of classical music with these elements that are particular to Carmel. Many of us that are newer residents of the community, and those who enjoy Carmel as frequent visitors, do not typically have the opportunity to see the lovely artist cottages and larger-scale manors and gardens up close and with the added benefit of amazing musical accompaniment.”
Tickets to “Cottages, Gardens & Cantatas” are $35 in advance and $40 on the day of the event, and are available online at www.bachfestival.org/
On the day of the event, tickets may also be purchased at Carmel Bach Festival’s office located at the corner of Mission Street and 10th Avenue in Carmel-By-The Sea. A map with details about each home will be released to ticket purchasers.
