Midlands Early Music Forum exists to promote all aspects of early music, in the Midlands of England. It is one of a number of regional fora, which between them cover most areas of the UK.
MEMF brings together amateur and professional musicians, singers and dancers, researchers, teachers and pupils, instrument makers, costumiers, and enthusiasts in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
Our workshop programme is open to anybody with an interest in early music, and concentrates on music from the mediaeval and renaissance (A440 pitch) and baroque (A415 pitch) periods.
You will see that we are cautiously resuming live workshops in October, assuming no further restrictions are re-imposed, with a wonderful celebration with Robert Hollingworth and I Fagiolini on the 9th.
Online events were suspended for the summer after a very busy year for all the Early Music Fora. We are in discussion as to whether to continue with occasional online talks/workshops/events by Zoom as we know there is some appetite for these from those less mobile and from our overseas members. We will keep you updated.
There is still some innovative and interesting early music online to listen to with information about Instrumental Teachers, who may continue to teach online, and many musical treats!
