  About Us

INVEST in BEMF
with a Named Gift!

Since 1981, the Boston Early Music Festival has consistently presented the very best Early Music artists on the Boston and Cambridge concert stages, and our 2018–2019 Season is no exception! BEMF’s 29th annual series is brimming with unique and thrilling performances by both rising stars and favorite returning artists, including Jordi Savall, Han Tol, Benjamin Alard, Les Talens Lyriques, The Tallis Scholars, Ensemble Correspondances, and the all-star BEMF Orchestra. Our popular Chamber Opera Series returns with a production of Francesca Caccini’s pioneering opera Alcina: four performances in Boston and New York make this a Thanksgiving feast!

Our groundbreaking work is only achievable thanks to your financial support. Income from ticket sales covers less than half the cost of presenting these magnificent programs, and CD sales do not begin to cover the costs of recording our world-class opera and vocal productions. We rely on many thoughtful and generous friends like you to help make ends meet.

You can provide vital leadership support with a Named Gift — opportunities start at just $500. When you support BEMF with a Named Gift, you invest directly in our music in a way that has special significance. Not only do Named Gifts help provide the crucial resources necessary to present a full season of extraordinary performances and to share our productions with the world through recording projects, but they are doubly meaningful in that they convey a clear message of thanks to your favorite artists, ensembles, and directors—that their work means something to you.

Please review our 2018–2019 Season in the enclosed brochure, and if there is an ensemble, soloist, orchestra member, or director to whom you would like to send this message of support, please consider making a Named Gift to BEMF as their sponsor. Donors receive prominent acknowledgement in our concert programs or recording booklets, invitations to receptions, and special thanks from the artists you sponsor.

To make a Named Gift, please call the BEMF Office at 617-661-1812 or email Kathleen Fay.
