Winter Programming

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 14, at 7:00 p.m. Its repeat broadcast will be on Sunday, December 20, at 5:00 p.m.

What was New Year’s like musically 500 years ago? Even the wonderful Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra had not been invented yet! Celebrating the first day of the new year has been an important tradition even before the existence of the Julian calendar. Dancing and partying required music! Join us for our New Year’s edition of Renaissance Fare on Monday, January 11, at 7:00 p.m., or for its repeat broadcast on Sunday, January 17, 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 fortunately love remains pretty much the same! This edition of Renaissance Fare will be heard on Monday, February 8, at 7:00 p.m. and has a repeat broadcast on Sunday, February 14, at 5:00 p.m.

Listen to Renaissance Fare on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. with a repeat broadcast on the following Sunday at 5:00 p.m.
