Our special Mother’s Day fundraiser will be held in one of the most amazing and historic nurseries in the area, Alladin Nursery. Enjoy complimentary beverages and delightful treats while surrounded by beautiful spring flowering plants at Alladin’s amazing gift shop and nursery to peruse at your heart’s content; while enjoying live Brazilian music by the artistry of Samba Cruz.


Musician, Teacher, Artistic Director & Founder, Mom

The Board of Directors dedicated the Santa Cruz Baroque Festival’s 51st Season, Legacies, to honor our founder and artistic director Linda Berman-Hall, who died suddenly on August 21, 2023 while attending a conference in Malaysia. It was her vision and boundless energy that has allowed SCBF to present excellent, historically informed performances of early music to the Santa Cruz community for decades. It is our hope you will share this expedition through musical time with your generous support for the future of the Santa Cruz Baroque Festival.

Directions & Special Parking Instructions: from Hwy 1: exit Freedom Blvd. to 5 Mile junction with Corralitos Road. Go past Alladin to the next immediate right between El Vaquero Winery and Jacobs Farm big red barns. The event lot will be a short distance on your right, behind the main Alladin Nursery & Gift Shop. Please, no parking in the front lot.
