The Festival’s first performance features two Baroque masters performing in beautiful Carmel Valley. Principal trumpet Robert Farley and principal keyboardist Andrew Arthur present “The King’s Trumpeter.” The title of the concert is taken from the name originally given to the head trumpeter, retained by the King, whose job it was to signal the attack in times of war. It is believed to go back to at least the 13th Century.  St. Dunstan’s beautiful sanctuary and Dobson pipe organ will host this entertaining evening.
