MUSIC DISCOVERY - fairiesSince its founding nearly forty years ago, the mission of the San Francisco Early Music Society has been to support and nurture early music in the Bay Area, promoting the next generation of artists and working to build the audiences to receive them.

Warren_Stewart 2We have just celebrated the close of 2013 with the voices of angels and a blast of trumpets when SFEMS–after a one year sabbatical by music director Warren Stewart–presented MAGNIFICAT and brought the splendor of A Venetian Christmas Mass to the Bay. It was glorious and chosen as one of the truly “memorable concerts of 2013” by Steven Smolar of the SF Examinar.

Recorder Workshop FacultyPreparations for a busy 2014 are well underway.  We are planning new concert season including additional performance opportunities for SFEMS members and affiliates, an expanded summer workshop schedule, and the 2014 Berkeley Festival & Exhibition including our unique and popular BFX Fringe Festival under the visionary leadership of SFEMS board member Robert Cole.
