Presenting the rising stars of early music and historical performance since 2018.


In-Person for 2022!

We are hopeful and looking forward to presenting the Emerging Artists Showcase in-person as part of the Berkeley Festival & Exhibition, June 5-12, 2022, in Berkeley, CA. This marks EMA’s fourth appearance at BFX, our last in 2016. We are also welcoming applications for a separate Virtual Emerging Artists Showcase to premiere in early June 2022.

Applicants are welcome to apply for both the in-person and virtual showcase using a single application submission. Selected artists will appear in-person or virtually but not both. Proposed programs should be 20-30 minutes in length.

The applications are open now with a deadline of Friday, February 14, 2022 at 11:59pm U.S. Eastern Time.

All selected applicants will receive a Showcase Grant to aid in travel to the Showcase and/or production of their program ($1,500 for In-Person or $1,000 for Virtual).
