Pricing and Seating

Berkeley Festival Main Stage concerts are priced individually. Please check concert pages for details.

Concerts at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church do not have assigned seats; most have two pricing tiers, Premium and General, corresponding to sections of seats in the front and rear of the Sanctuary.

Concerts at First Congregational Church do have assigned seats. All have three pricing tiers: Premium, Plus, and Basic. These are denoted in red, blue, and yellow on the seating charts.

Mini-series discount: receive 15% off all of your tickets to six or more different concerts!

Member discounts: SFEMS members receive an automatic 10% off all ticket prices. Please be sure to use the e-mail address and password associated with your membership when ordering. Discounts are also available for members of Early Music America, the Viola da Gamba Society of America, and the American Recorder Society; please e-mail for details.

Discounts cannot be combined or stacked–only the largest applicable single discount will count toward the final ticket price.

Student tickets are $15 ($5 for the Davis High School Baroque Ensemble concert) and are available to full-time students under the age of 30 with valid student ID. Student tickets cannot be purchased in conjunction with general admission tickets and must be purchased separately.  Student-priced seating is available only in the Basic/General seating areas at each venue. The mini-series discount does apply to student tickets, but other discounts and codes do not.
