Asheville Baroque Concerts

Season 5: 2019-2020

Bountiful Baroque!

A mini-festival of German gems

In collaboration with Pan Harmonia


Due to the increased risk of Coronavirus infection in places of gathering, Pan Harmonia and Asheville Baroque Concerts have decided to postpone Bountiful Baroque: A mini-festival of German Gems. Although we are disappointed to cancel the concerts on March 27 and 29, we feel that the safety of our community and our colleagues must take precedence. If you have already purchased tickets and would like a refund please, write us at, and we will do so by March 31. Otherwise, you will receive credit when the performances are rescheduled. We look forward to presenting these programs at a later date. Please visit for further updates and information. Thank you for understanding.

With best wishes,

Kate Steinbeck and Gail Ann Schroeder
