March is Early Music Month! Early Music America sponsors this annual campaign to raise awareness of how important early music has become in our schools, our concert halls, and among amateur and professional players alike. Musica Antiqua on WORT is proud to join 250+ other individuals, ensembles, and organizations as an official partner of EMM.
To kick off the month, this Sunday Marika Fischer Hoyt will join us at 10:00 a.m. to talk about Bach Around The Clock, a marathon celebration of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach to be held on March 18 at St. Andrews Church on Regent Street. BATC offers all members of the Madison musical community, from young students to seasoned professionals, the opportunity to perform and hear selections by this sublime composer. Marika will describe how BATC came to be and how you can join in the fun. And you can tune into WORT on March 18 to hear BATC in a live stream.
Musica Antiqua, presenting the best in early music, 8-11 a.m. every Sunday on WORT.
