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, encouraging lively debates on topics ranging from staging Baroque operas in modern times, to developing the early music audience in North America, and current trends in instrument building.

Join in these lively debates on a range of topics from staging Baroque opera in modern day, developing early music audiences in North America, and current trends in instrument building.
