MEMF participants line up to dance at the MEMF 2016 dance event


Due to the University of Wisconsin–Madison’s decision to suspend in-person courses, workshops, and conferences for summer term because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Madison Early Music Festival Workshop and Concert Series has been postponed until July 10-17, 2021. This extraordinary situation has affected all of us and we will miss seeing you this summer. Updates will be posted on our website as they are available.
