In our 2018-2019 seaso, the Renaissance Singers returns to our roots of singing music from the Renaissance, among other periods, includig part songs and madrigals. You will again experience the community spirit that music engenders, with traditional and non-traditional pieces, an increase in a cappella singing, and the clear and distinct sound that a small chamber choir can provide. Our repertoire will sample traditional offerings from our library, as well as music outside our borders and traditions. We invite you to become a part of our “community”.

Sincerly, Greg Walshaw
