Rachel Smith: Boston Early Music Festival

The Boston Early Music Festival (BEMF) is a 7-day early music extravaganza in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts and is co-directed by Eastman’s own Paul O’Dette. On the performance side, the festival includes an historically-accurate production of an opera, one chamber opera, small ensemble concerts by world-renowned early music groups and up-and-coming students, and a month-long Young Artists Training Program for baroque singers. In addition, there are various symposia, lectures, masterclasses, dance workshop and the largest Early music trade show exhibition in North America. Rachel Smith used her Special Opportunity Grant to collaborate with Prof. Thielman as the “impresario” of Eastman Collegium Ensemble at BEMF. Some of Rachel’s responsibilities included assisting with raising money for travel expenses, organizing instrument access, and the logistics of the performance.
