This year’s Berkeley Festival & Exhibition (BFX) is rapidly approaching, and we are looking to you to help make this the most exciting early music festival to date.


For more than two decades, BFX has played an important role in the early music community. In fact, as you know, BFX has gained world recognition as an essential gathering for early music—celebrating the centuries of musicians who have come before us and who have contributed to this beautiful genre as well as embodying the commitment, richness, and depth of the Bay Area early music community.

In recent years the support and the organization of BFX has increasingly fallen on the shoulders of the San Francisco Early Music Society (SFEMS) and the wider Bay Area early music community. BFX and SFEMS need your financial contribution. The future of the Berkeley Festival depends on you!
