Bloomington Early Music Festival
Celebrating Women in Early Music | May 22-27, 2022
9 CENTURIES OF MUSIC. 15 CONCERTS. 6 WORKSHOPS. ALL FREE.

BLEMF 2022 is dedicated to celebrating women in early music, highlighting the presence, influence, and artistry of women across nine centuries of musical culture and music-making. From the convents of the medieval period through the salons of the early 19th century, women participated in music as composers, performers, poets, patrons, and listeners; from positions of political, religious, and social power; in front of audiences and behind the scenes.

BLEMF 2022 gives such women the stage—those long-remembered and those only recently rediscovered—to bring the music they made in their time to our audiences today.

In-person concerts will be live-streamed, and virtual concerts will be available for streaming for two weeks following their premiere date. All virtual concerts will be screened at the Monroe County Library, Downtown Branch in room 2A at the scheduled release time.
