Winter 2018-19 Programs

Renaissance Fare will visit several European countries on our December program for a glimpse of the sounds of Christmas during the 1400s and 1500s. Many beautiful holiday tunes and hymns were written during the Renaissance period. Don’t miss our Christmas edition on Monday, December 10, at 7:00 p.m. with a repeat broadcast on Sunday, December 16, at 5:00 p.m.

What was New Years like musically 500 years ago? Even the wonderful Vienna Philharmonic had not been invented yet! Celebrating the first day of the new year has been an important tradition even before the existence of the Gregorian calendar. Dancing and partying required music! Join us for our New Year’s edition on Monday, January 14, at 7:00 p.m. with a repeat broadcast on Sunday, January 20, at 5:00 p.m.

February is the month of presidents and love, and we’ll feature music for both! We’ll probably substitute music for kings rather than presidents, but love remains pretty much the same! This edition of Renaissance Fare will be heard on Monday, February 11, at 7:00 p.m. with a repeat broadcast on Sunday, February 17, at 5:00 p.m.
