MEMF has moved from its administrative home in the UW-Madison Division of the Arts to a new administrative home in the Mead Witter School of Music as of February 2021. The festival will be known as the Madison Early Music Festival, a program of the Mead Witter School of Music.
MEMF will be an integral part of the academic year so more students can have an opportunity to work with professionals in the field of early music. In order to focus on this goal, the decision has been made to discontinue the summer festival in its current (pre-pandemic) format. MEMF concerts, lectures and classes will now be offered in some capacity throughout the year.
