BREAKING NEWS: We're a go for performing the Brahms Requiem in 2016! Please consider helping the last bit of our final funding by contributing to our online Indiegogo campaign.

Since 2002, the Isthmus Vocal Ensemble has maintained a remarkable tenure as one of Madison's most elusive yet enduring summer musical institutions.

Built from the great choral traditions of Robert Fountain and other luminaries, the group unites the talents of director Scott MacPherson with some of the Midwest's top singers for a brief, intensive rehearsal period. The result: two sparkling performances that linger with audiences throughout the year.

Now gearing up for a major orchestral collaboration in 2016, this professional-grade ensemble remains both evanescent and eagerly anticipated.

Join us for our 2016 season!
