EMA Young Performers Festival

SFEMS welcomes the return of Early Music America’s (EMA) Young Performers Festival to the Berkeley Festival & Exhibition since its last appearance in 2016. For the past decade, 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.

This year, the Young Performers Festival will be held at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (50 Oak St., San Francisco, CA 94102) on Monday and Tuesday, June 8 and 9, and will consist of performances, public masterclasses, and workshops.
