Eastern Music Festival Thanks 2018 Sponsors!

Each year Eastern Music Festival partners with individual and corporate sponsors to raise over $1 million of our $2.29 million annual budget to present the Festival.

Because of these generous sponsorships, Eastern Music Festival is able to bring in world-class guest artists. This year's guest artist roster has included Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Anne Akiko Meyers, Micha Dichter, Kun-Woo Paik and Stefan Jackiw.

Eastern Music Festival is deeply grateful to the following businesses, corporations and foundations who partner with us in changing lives through music. "Now, more than ever, we are encouraged by the generosity of patrons from both the public and private sectors" Says EMF Board Chair Dr. Timothy Lane.
