Two weeks of rehearsal...
Two Madison-area performances...
We could not be more excited for the 2016 review from Isthmus.com praising our Brahms A German Requiem as being "about the best I have yet encountered."

Our 2017 Concert season:
2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Artistic Director Scott MacPherson's mentor, Robert Fountain. Dr. Fountain's profound influence touched the lives of many of the singers in IVE, and we look forward to honoring his legacy through song. It also marks the final year that IVE will sing under our founding director, Dr. MacPherson. Those of us (like your humble webmaster) who sang under both musicians feel deeply blessed and fortunate. We look forward to seeing you there.

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.
Our 2016 performances were supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
