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. This extraordinary situation has affected all of us and we missed seeing you this summer. Updates will be posted on our website as they are available.
