SFEMS Annual Member’s Meeting.  All Welcome.
SFEMS is celebrating 36 years leading and nurturing the development of our early music community, with a world-acclaimed concert series, nationally recognized education programs and summer workshops, and continued service to the community through our Affiliates Program and production of the biennial Berkeley Festival.

Our successes are many, yet we find ourselves struggling to find the visionary leadership we need to take us into the future by reaching out to the larger community for financial support, embracing the technologies of the 21st century to draw a broader audience, and shaping our unique and evolving role as the leading early music organization in the Bay Area.

We are asking you and all Affiliate Organizations to participate in our search for new board members. We recognize that your commitment to SFEMS and your knowledge of the organization can help us to find the leadership that we need.

Please attend. If you cannot attend, please consider nominating someone who shares the goals of SFEMS and can help us to realize those goals. Send any board nominations to Marilyn Marquis,
