Since 1961, Eastern Music Festival & School has been drawing young artists and music lovers from all over the world to Greensboro, North Carolina, for five glorious weeks each summer.
This upcoming season, June 23–July 28, 2012, will see Eastern Music Festival (EMF) enjoy its 51st year of creating beautiful music.
We invite you to join a list of respected businesses, retail establishments and service providers who advertise in our program guide - a full size, color playbill that accompanies our season of more than 100 concerts and music-related events. Our free playbill is not only an invaluable reference for Festival patrons and participants but an ideal vehicle for the delivery of your message. EMF Young Artists range in age from 14-22 and are interested in a variety of music-related experiences, including bachelors and masters degrees, as well as continuing education opportunities. Our audience is well-educated with significant disposable income, and many are business leaders and key decision-makers in our community. Copies of our playbill are distributed at various locations – including Triad Stage, Guilford College, the Appalachian Summer Festival in Boone, NC, the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, DC, and the UNCG School of Music – providing increased exposure to your advertisement.
For information on advertising opportunities, email Kenneth Bradshaw, General Manager, or call (336) 333-7450 ext.32
