My name is Jennifer Sams and this year I am the House Manager for the Madison Early Music Festival concert series. We currently need ushers for the concert lectures and performances. If you are interested in ushering we are able to provide you with a ticket to that performance. This is a great opportunity, especially for music majors, to hear live performances by some of the top ensembles in early music. Please see the attachment below for further details and contact me directly with any questions. If you are able to usher, let me know your concert preference as soon as possible so that I can put you on my list! Thank you!

El Nuevo Mundo: The Age of Exploration in the New World

The Madison Early Music Festival and Workshop, which recently celebrated its tenth season, takes place one week each July. The Festival brings nationally and internationally renowned performers to Madison to perform and to teach workshop classes, providing listening and learning opportunities for everyone.

Madison Early Music Festival 2011 presents the fusion of cultures and music in the New World during the Renaissance and Baroque eras.  Long-established European music brought to the New World by 16th-century Spanish conquistadors, minstrels, and Jesuit missionaries was flavored by the indigenous American people with the spicy folk sonorities of guitars, harps, percussion, and dance rhythms.

The 2011 concert series will feature an exciting array of artists and ensembles:

July 9: Piffaro
July 10: The Rose Ensemble
July 12: Ensemble Viscera
July 14: MEMF Faculty Concert
July 15: Chatham Baroque
July 16: All-Festival Concert
