Valley of the Moon Music Festival co-founders Tanya Tomkins and Eric Zivian know that the best way to hear classical music is to hear it in the style of the times. That’s why their annual festival utilizes authentic period instruments, played by masterful performers in the charming setting of Sonoma Valley. This year’s festival celebrates the life and works of Romantic composer and critic Robert Schumann, with concerts of his music and of works that he championed in his lifetime. The festival’s opening concert, “Deserving of a Laurel Crown,” features selections from Schumann, Chopin and Mozart on Sunday, July 16, at Hanna Boys Center, 17000 Arnold Drive, Sonoma. 4pm. $22–$40. valleyofthemoonmusicfestival.org.
