The Early Music Forum of Scotland (EMFS) brings together singers, players, listeners and instrument makers from around Scotland with an interest in the medieval, renaissance and baroque periods. Our members range from professional to amateur, from singers to players of viols, recorders, sackbutt, cornett and more!
We organise an early music choir, occasional choral and instrumental workshops and coaching weekends, and early music performances in public spaces. Most of our events currently take place in Edinburgh (but we’d love to find people willing to organise events elsewhere in Scotland!).
We are a member-run and self-funded voluntary organisation.
Help us to support early music events in Scotland by becoming a member of EMFS. Go to our Membership page to find out about membership benefits and how to join. EMFS members are automatically enrolled in our Events Mailing List.

Are you a member of a choir or instrumental group (amateur or professional)? We can publicise your concert or event to our e-mailing list, if it includes early music. Email the details to event notification. Please give at least 2 weeks’ advance notice!
