Coming up at BEMF…
We can't wait to be together again! Our 2021–2022 Season is coming this fall—artists and dates are now available, with more information to come later this summer. We are working closely with our venues in Boston and Cambridge to determine safety procedures for each location, and we are in touch with our treasured artists to ensure their comfort with our plans. Tickets will go on sale this summer as soon as final preparations are in place. Please be assured that we will do everything possible to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our audience, artists, and staff and we will follow all applicable regulations from state and local officials.
We're also eager to hear from you! Email us at email@example.com to share your hopes and expectations as we look forward to opening up our doors again.
Our 32nd annual concert season will include some of BEMF's favorite artists and ensembles, including Jordi Savall, Kristian Bezuidenhout & Carolyn Sampson, Stile Antico, our own BEMF Vocal & Chamber Ensembles, and so much more.
