We look forward to welcoming you to the EMF soon!





We are tremendously excited to be bringing the EMF to South Africa in a long weekend of events based in and around St George’s Anglican Church, Parktown, in Johannesburg. This wonderful city offers many excellent venues and performers, as well as a great interest in music. The forthcoming Festival – which will see British artists collaborating with Johannesburg-based musicians – will, we believe, be rewarding and culturally enriching both for the EMF and for music-lovers in the area. The Festival will take place between 14 and 16 February 2020.

Online booking for the Johannesburg EMF is now open here! Please visit this page to purchase your tickets; Festival Passes are also available. We promise a weekend of scintillating, stimulating and energetic music-making – for the full programme, please see this page.

We are delighted to announce that the programme for the 2020 Oxfordshire EMF is now published, with important world premières of works by composers including Elgar and Delius; Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s superb (and too-rarely-performed) Violin Concerto; large-scale choral concerts; intimate chamber recitals; and late-night piano and dance-band music. Please visit this page for full details!

Thank you to all who contributed to the 2019 Autumn Festival: to those at St Andrew’s Church, Aysgarth, for their warm hospitality and invaluable help; to the artists, for their superb performances of some wonderful music; to the volunteers who staffed the Box Office, undertook Front-of-House duties, and served refreshments; and, of course, to the audience members for supporting the event, some of whom travelled a considerable distance to be with us. We are currently considering possibilities for the 2020 Festival, which, perhaps, will take place slightly earlier, at the end of August. Please visit this page soon for more details.

Our recording arm, EM Records, has released a number of exciting new recordings, including a triple-disc set of Parry’s complete works for violin and piano and a disc of searingly beautiful choral works by Paul Carr and others. Please visit the EM Records website for full details of these and others!
