Madison Early Music Festival

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Arts Institute announces the 18th annual Madison Early Music Festival Workshop and Concert Series, Quixotic Musical Treasures from the Golden Age of Spain. Celebrating the 400th anniversary of the novel Don Quixote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes, we will explore the wealth of references to the music, art, and literature that flourished and illuminated Renaissance Spain during the political rise and fall of the Spanish Habsburg Dynasty.

Join us from July 8-15, 2017 and experience a full week of music, history, and culture from Renaissance Spain, through classes, lectures, dances, and concerts taught and performed by some of the world’s finest early music artists. Guest artists for the concert series include Xavier Díaz-Latorre, Daphna Mor & Kane Mathis duo, Sonnambula, and Piffaro, The Renaissance Band.
