Fringe Concerts

The Boston Early Music Festival has begun accepting registrations for its Fringe Concert Series, presented in conjunction with the 2023 Boston Early Music Festival, A Celebration of Women, June 4–11, 2023.

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 are artist-produced events that take place at selected venues in the heart of downtown Boston during Festival Week (June 4-11, 2023). 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, while also enjoying Baroque opera performances and concerts performed by the world’s leading soloists and ensembles, and visiting the world-famous Exhibition, which features dozens of instrument makers, music publishers, performing ensembles, schools and universities, and colleague service organizations.

Fringe Concerts are publicized by BEMF to its Festival ticket buyers and subscribers, advertised on the BEMF website, included in the Festival Program Book, and distributed with BEMF’s press package to local, national, and international media. Your concert will also receive robust promotion via our mailings, newsletters, and email blasts. Fringe artists are responsible for reserving and renting their performance venues, organizing rehearsal time, and managing ticket sales for their events.
