Concerts for the Early Music Sundays series should consist of early music performed on period instruments. The definition of “early music” can be at the discretion of the concert committee, the President and the ED.  However, no modern instruments!  The relationship of Jazz and early music is not of primary importance but may be noted in the existence of improvisation in both genres.  However, the concert should not include anything that is construed to be jazz, jazz performance, or pop music of any kind.”

If your ensemble is interested in performing on this series please send your concert proposal including:

•  Name of the ensemble
•  Description of the proposed concert
•  Concert title
•  Works to be performed
•  Performers
•  Audio or video submission may be requested for non-SFEMS affiliate proposals

Please send proposals in the form of a PDF and audio files to BStewart@sfems.org   or _billstewart.bill@gmail.com_
The deadline for receiving proposals is May 15.
