The Boston Early Music Festival promotes the continuing vitality of Early Music through unparalleled Baroque opera productions, a celebrated concert series, a biennial world-class international Festival, GRAMMY-winning recordings, and acclaimed touring programs.
As the world’s leading presenter and producer of the very highest quality performances of Early Music, including standard repertoire and newly revived masterpieces that inspire and delight contemporary audiences, BEMF gives music lovers a better understanding of the great music of the past, while providing worldwide leadership services on behalf of artists, musicologists, instrument makers, and colleague institutions.
What makes it all happen? Artistically, BEMF is privileged to work with the world’s leading directors, musicians, and scholars to assemble its broad range of concerts, groundbreaking operas, and other insightful activities. But without an enthusiastic audience with whom we can share our passion and performances, we would be an institution without a purpose.
That’s why BEMF turns to every fan of Early Music and fine musicianship who both understands the importance of our work and appreciates the vital contribution BEMF makes to Boston’s rich cultural landscape. Ticket sales cover less than half the cost of producing our concerts and operas. Please consider supporting the world-renowned Boston Early Music Festival!
