San Francisco Early Music Society presents the 2018 Berkeley Festival and Exhibition.
REIMAGINING, REINVENTING, REDEFINING EARLY MUSIC
Welcome to the 15th biennial Berkeley Festival and Exhibition. Founded in 1990, and alternating with the Boston Early Music Festival in even-numbered years, BFX has become one of the world’s largest and most important early music conclaves, deemed “a remarkable institution on the American musical scene” by The New York Times.
This year, 19 Main Stage concerts, over 8 days, sample the great wealth and power of our musical heritage—works from the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras—performed by some of their most passionate and powerful exponents, from across America and abroad.
