Concurrent Events

One of the most important features of each Festival is the remarkable array of Fringe Concerts—performances by nearly 100 soloists and ensembles from New England, North America, and Europe—that ilumine the the wonderful music and musicians of the Early Music field. The 2015 lineup will include concerts by Chatham Baroque, New York Continuo Collective, Pegasus Early Music with NYS Baroque, HESPERUS, and Musical Offering, to name but a few.

Register Your Fringe Concert

Fringe Concerts are artist-produced concerts that take place at selected venues in the heart of downtown Boston during Festival Week (June 7-14, 2015). Presented by emerging and established artists alike from across North America, and as far away as the United Kingdom, Belgium, and Germany, BEMF Fringe Concerts offer hundreds of musicians the opportunity to share their talent and artistry with North America’s largest community of early music professionals and enthusiasts.

The Boston Early Music Festival has begun accepting applications for its Fringe Concert Series, presented in conjunction with the 2015 Boston Early Music Festival.
