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 discover 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.

Lose yourself in the world of El Siglo de Oro as the Madison Early Music Festival (MEMF) explores the world of Don Quixote, experienced through classes, lectures, dances, and concerts taught and performed by some of the world’s finest early music artists on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.
