  About Us

2019 Festival | June 9-16, 2019

One of the most important features of every Festival is the remarkable array of Fringe Concerts—performances by nearly 100 soloists and ensembles from New England, North America, and Europe—that illumine the wonderful music and accomplished musicians of the Early Music field. The 2017 lineup included concrts by Houston Baroque, Entwyned Early Music, The Vivaldi Project, The Venere Lute Quartet, Trio Amaranti, Hesperus, and Aberfoyle Baroque, to name only a few.

Presenting a Fringe Concert at the Boston Early Music Festival is the ideal way to share your talent and artistry with North America’s largest community of early music professionals and enthusiasts. At the same time, enjoy Baroque opera performances and concerts performed by the world’s leading soloists and ensembles, and visit the world-famous Exhibition, which features more than 100 instrument makers, music publishers, performing ensembles, schools and universities, and colleague service organizations.

We hope you will consider being a part of “the premier early music event in North America” (Early Music, United Kingdom) by presenting a Fringe Concert at the 2019 Boston Early Music Festival. Please direct questions and inquiries to Carla Chrisfield, BEMF General Manager, at 617-661-1812 or The registration period will begin in late 2018.
