Coburn Music an adventurous and innovative early music concert series that aims to bring the Truckee-Tahoe basin to the forefront of the classical music scene. Founded by Truckee native Lindsay McIntosh (née Hollingshead), Coburn Music will launch it's inaugural season this summer with 6 pop up concerts peppered throughout the historic Downtown Truckee. McIntosh, who has been praised by The New York Times for her “thoughtfully conceived” programming, will bring New Vintage Baroque to the Truckee basin for a week-long music series this August. The program promises to enrich and engage the Truckee Tahoe community with fun for audiences of all ages. This festival is committed to bringing the highest level of historically informed early music to our beautiful region.
At the Coburn Music we create in-roads that lead to the heart of Baroque music. Coburn Music’s mission is to promote the discovery of Baroque music by incorporating it into everyday places. Whether in your daily coffee shop or on your favorite hiking trail, the experience of happening upon live Baroque music incites excitement and wonder in music-lovers of all kind. We aim to add context to Baroque music. During the Baroque Era (1610-1760), musical households and salon style programs elevated everyday life - it was a family affair! This familiar pastime was everywhere; in salons, castles, opera houses, gardens, even coffee houses. Coburn Music creates an immersive, easily-accessible musical experience for everybody in the Truckee basin.
