SEMFaround

Early music goes to town! SEMF begins its second decade with the launching of SEMFaround, an ”out and about festival” before it all happens, in collaboration with various venues around the city. Spirits are lifted, taste buds tickled, and expectations excited! Early music is in the spotlight and may pop up in a museum, a school, or a shopping centre. Warm up your early music muscles and heart with SEMFaround!
