Festival Description

The Boston Early Music Festival (BEMF) is universally recognized as a leader in the field of early music. Since its founding in 1980 by leading practitioners of early music performance in the United States and abroad, BEMF has promoted early music through biennial Festivals featuring newly revived baroque operatic masterpieces, concerts by the world’s leading soloists and ensembles, scholarly symposia, performance masterclasses, and fringe concerts by emerging artists. Through its programs, BEMF has earned its place as the nation’s premier presenting organization for conservators and performers of music of the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods and has secured Boston’s reputation as “America’s early music capital” (Richard Dyer, Boston Globe.)
