The Amherst Early Music Festival is a workshop offering the largest program of classes for early music enthusiasts, from amateur to professional, in the US. But it is more than a workshop. The Festival Concert Series presents 8 highly-acclaimed evening concerts, including a fully-staged Baroque Opera, which are open to the public and free for participants. There are also Salon concerts in the late evenings and several other performances of vocal music, instrumental music, and dance on the weekends. The Music and Instrument Exhibition hosts instrument makers, music shops, experimental projects, and more over the middle weekend. Lectures, English Country Dances, madrigal singing, and other events provide a wealth of choices for participants and outside guests.

Classes are on a wide range Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Traditional music topics. You can take an easy ride, just for the fun of it, or you can improve your playing, singing, or dancing; expand your knowledge; and enjoy being part of the friendly and stimulating Festival community.
