11/17/20: Applications welcome for the 2021 Virtual Emerging Artists Showcase
Deadline for submission: January 5, 2021

Young Performers Festival

Since 2010, Early Music America (EMA) has been proud to bring together college and university ensembles throughout North America to perform at the nation’s leading early music festivals in Berkeley, CA, Bloomington, IN, and Boston, MA. Applicants submitting programs that move beyond the traditional Western classical canon, but fall within the same historical range (to ca.1820), are encouraged to apply.

Emerging Artists Showcase

Begun in 2018, the Showcase goes beyond the university level already represented by YPF to serve the broadest possible range of artists. The term “emerging artist” can include historically-informed performers of all types, without respect to age. Applicants are asked to describe how they see the future of historical performance taking shape, and to define how their role as artists and ensembles aligns with that future vision. Applicants submitting programs that move beyond the traditional Western classical canon, but fall within the same historical range (to ca.1820), are encouraged to apply.

As we move forward with the Festival & Showcase, our hope is that we can offer soloists and ensembles a supportive and stimulating environment in which they can grow and flourish. We look forward to presenting dynamic concerts that reflect the future of historical performance in North America.
