2018-2019 Season

Venue Change

Due to unforeseen structural damage to the beautiful sanctuary at St. Paul Church, we have made the difficult decision to change the venue for both of our upcoming performances in December. The Tallis Scholars on Friday, December 7, 2018, and Ensemble Correspondances on Saturday, December 15, 2018, will now take place at The Memorial Church of Harvard University, located in Harvard Yard.  Originally announced dates and performance times are unchanged.

We have been closely monitoring repair and restoration work to the sanctuary at St. Paul Church over the last month. During a site visit last week, it became clear that the current phase of maintenance would have a far greater impact on our December concerts than we had anticipated. The comfort of our patrons and artists is of paramount importance; we are grateful to have secured an alternative venue on such short notice, just steps away in Harvard Yard.

Ticket holders for both performances will be contacted with information about replacement tickets. Ticket availability may be limited—until later this week—while the BEMF Box Office staff completes necessary arrangements to reseat all ticket buyers in comparable seating at The Memorial Church. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact David Cronin, Director of Audience Services and Box Office Manager at or 617-661-1812.

While we sincerely regret any confusion or inconvenience with this change of plan, we are, nonetheless, relieved that such an extraordinary venue - also in Harvard Square - has been secured in order to welcome back The Tallis Scholars on Friday, December 7, 2018, and Ensemble Correspondances on Saturday December 15, 2018.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Our two December Concerts—The Tallis Scholars on December 7 and Ensemble Correspondances on December 15—have been moved to The Memorial Church of Harvard University, located in Harvard Yard, just a short walk from the original venue of St. Paul Church in Harvard Square. Learn more about this venue change.

Once you have arrived in Harvard Square, please enter Harvard Yard via any of the GATES and proceed to Memorial Church located towards the Northeast corner of Harvard Yard. The entrance to the Church is located on the West side of the building, with an accessible ramp located on the Northwest corner.
