Concurrent Events

BEMF Concurrent Events offer unique opportunities to hear from and interact with some of the top scholars and artists in Early Music today.

Join the BEMF Board, Staff, Artistic Directors, Festival Artists, and guests for an Opening Night Gala Reception following the opening matinée of Steffani's Orlando.

Performance Masterclasses allow students, as well as professional musicians, to receive a public coaching by some of the top performers in the field today. Auditors are encouraged to attend.

Featured BEMF Artists lead a participatory Dance Workshops exploring aspects of Baroque dance featured in Boston Early Music Festival opera productions. This unqiue event is always popular and limited to the first 50 particpants.

At every Festival, BEMF gathers performers, scholars, and industry professionals from around the world to discuss issues pertinent to the field of Baroque opera and early music in a series of Lectures and Symposia.

Pre-Opera Talks precede all BEMF Centerpiece opera performances. These engaging talks offer audience members fascinating insights into the music and the evolution of BEMF's production. Pre-Concert Talks are also offered for a selection of Festival Concerts.

The BEMF Meet-the-Artists Party after the final performance of Le Carnaval de Venise celebrates the successful conclusion of the Festival with food, drink, and impromptu performances by BEMF Artists!
