Boston Early Music Festival: June 7-14, 2015

Fringe Concerts

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 highlight the burgeoning field of early music. The 2013 lineup included concerts by Baroque violinist Rachel Barton Pine with harpsichordist Paul Cienniwa, Vox Lucens directed by Jay Lane, La Donna Musicale, Ensemble Gaudior, Exsultemus directed by Shannon Canavin, and Concordia, to name but a few.

Fringe Concerts are artist-produced concerts that take place at selected venues in the heart of downtown Boston during Festival Week (June 9-16). 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.
