  1. Madison has a great thirst, it seems, for Baroque and early music. Hence, the success of the Early Music Festival and groups like this.

    Perhaps UW Music should add an Early Music emphasis for its students, furthering the trend? They already have a number of faculty who could take part in this so at most it means adding one person. Local funding likely would be possible. It would also set the school off.
