The University of Wisconsin–Madison Arts Institute announces the 16th annual Madison Early Music Festival and Workshop (MEMF). MEMF 2015 will run July 11 through July 18. Our theme is Slavic Discoveries: Early Music from Eastern Europe In addition to a 7-event Festival Concert Series, lectures and workshops will provide opportunities to learn and practice instrumental and vocal skills, become familiar with historical performance practices and repertoire, learn about the featured music through the lenses of history and culture, and perform with other participants and faculty artists.

This year marks a period of transition for the Madison Early Music Festival. As of 2015, MEMF is now presented by the UW-Madison Arts Institute. The Arts Institute is the voice of the arts at the university. We are excited to continue serving our audiences with their guidance and expertise.

More information about registration and ticket sales will become available in early 2015, with the brochure mailing occurring in late February, and registration becoming available on April 1, 2015.
