Boston Early Music Festival 2021 – Virtual Offerings

I’ve been attending BEMF events for many years, but often it’s been concerts outside of the June festival schedule, or one or two performances in June as time has allowed.  Since I moved to Connecticut over 16 years ago, I haven’t been able to attend as many events in Boston as I would like.

One of the nice (?) things about the pandemic is that it pushed a lot of organizations into thinking creatively about product and service delivery, and BEMF has done a terrific job adapting in the time of COVID.  They are offering a subscription to all 16 paid festival events for $150!  I’m tempted to purchase it, even if I don’t get to watch everything, to support the festival.  We saw Jordi Savall in 2012 and I think I probably paid that much for 2 tickets (totally worth it!)

A fringe concert series is being offered as well and that is entirely free and available online through the end of September.
