  About Us

“[Boston], already a center of the early-music movement, becomes its mecca when this acclaimed [Boston Early Music Festival] brings hundreds more musicians, instrument makers, scholars, and publishers to town.”

The New York Times


Boston Early Music Festival: June 7-14, 2015metamorphoses: June 12-19, 2011

The Exhibition & CD Store

The heart of the Boston Early Music Festival is the world-famous Exhibition. The premiere early music trade show in North America and among the largest in the world, the BEMF Exhibition will feature makers of authentic period instruments, publishers of sheet music, dealers in rare books, prints, and manuscripts, and the world’s top conservatories and schools of music. Visit these specialists for discussions on instrument building, for information about courses of study, to find unique performance editions, and to immerse yourself in a variety of historical products. For a fascinating, hands-on early music experience, the BEMF Exhibition is unparalleled.

For the 2015 Festival, the Exhibition moves to its new home at the Courtyard Marriott Boston Downtown Hotel. Stay tuned for an official schedule announcement later this year.


Located at the BEMF Exhibition, the BEMF CD Store offers a comprehensive selection of spectacular early music recordings for sale, including BEMF’s own Grammy-nominated series of Baroque opera recordings: Conradi’s Ariadne, Lully’s Thésée, and Lully’s Psyché. With over 400 titles and 5,000 CDs from the field’s most distinguished labels, save plenty of time to peruse this extraordinary treasure chest!
