York Early Music Fest online logo


The 2020 festival, celebrating the ‘Method & Madness’ of musical styles from the Renaissance to Beethoven, was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In its place, the NCEM has created its first YEMF Online festival running from 9 – 11 July.

Streamed from the NCEM – your new virtual concert hall - guests include countertenor Iestyn Davies partnered by lutenist Elizabeth Kenny (Thursday 9 July); Richard Boothby lyra viols; Matthew Wadsworth lute/theorbo; Steven Devine harpsichord and the internationally acclaimed vocal ensemble Stile Antico (Saturday 11 July). 

All the festival events will be streamed direct on this website, with access into each event permitted by using the email address that you book with.
