MOUNTAINSIDE BAROQUE CANCELS ITS MARCH 29 CONCERT, “VENICE & ROME”
The Mountainside Baroque March 29 concert, “Venice and Rome” has been cancelled due to coronavirus precautions. We regret that this brings our 2019-2020 concert series to a close. If circumstances allow, “Venice & Rome” may appear in some form as part of the new season coming this fall.

MBQ Musicians Fund
Supremely talented professional musicians come from near and far to perform as part of the Mountainside Baroque collective. They are all part of the gig economy. In the time of coronavirus and concert cancellations, this means our artists are struggling financially. Moreover, the long-term impact of those personal difficulties on an organization such as ours could be devastating. We are doing what we can by making partial payment of fees performers would have earned with the March 29 concert. Your donation in lieu of a refund will help us do that. If you don’t have tickets but intended to attend the March 29 concert, please consider a cash donation in that amount or any other.
