Gamba Gamut at BEMF


The VdGSA's Gamba Gamut, a regular event at the biennial Boston Early Music Festival, will be online like the rest of the festival this year! VdGSA Members may apply to perform in the Gamut as soloists (up to 5 minutes of pre-recorded video performance) or in ensembles (up to 10 minutes, if at least two of the performers are VdGSA members).

Full guidelines are listed below. We recommend that interested performers screen their planned contribution with Erik Andersen ( for approval. The submission deadline for completed video is FRIDAY, MAY 9th. The anonymous Gamba Gamut committee will select from submitted videos and create a continuous concert program.


Video specifications:

  • Submissions to the Gamba Gamut in the BEMF Fringe Concert Series must be fully edited video recordings at a high-definition resolution of 1080p or 4k, with MP4 or MOV format preferred. The VdGSA will compile the selected videos into a continuous concert program.

  • Videos can include non-members but should feature members of the VdGSA.

  • Videos of individual performers (or where just one of the performers is a member) can be up to 5 minutes in length

  • Videos with 2 or more members of the VdGSA can be up to 10 minutes in length.

  • Please do not add slides or supertitles to your video.

  • In the submission email, please include information about your performance (title of piece, composer, dates, movements) and the performers (full names and instruments) as you would like it to appear on video. — thinking about)
