Let me welcome you to another season of fine music and music-making with the Renaissance Singers. This year the choir’s focus will be the theme of ‘heritage’. Having just finished a successful 40th Anniversary season, it seemed like a good time to take inventory of the various traditions that have influenced us so far. This includes our spiritual heritage, musical heritage, political heritage and literary heritage. We have created a unique and exciting program for each one. We look forward to having you with us on our heritage journey.
