Piva: The Renaissance Collective

Thursday 27 Feb 2020 7.30 pm

in the Old Hall, Lampeter University

The members of PIVA have wide musical backgrounds and between them play renaissance, jazz, classical, baroque, folk and roots music. They combine these diverse musical influences with a wide knowledge of renaissance music and instruments. All are multi-instrumentalists, even playing up to 40 different instruments at a gig!. The result is a unified approach to the renaissance repertoire: PIVA aims to be faithful to the music of the period whilst adding their own innovative arrangements and interpretations.

PIVA is delighted to join Lampeter Music Club to present their “Measure for Measure” programme of  William Shakespeare's time. He wrote for all of society, from the courtiers who paid handsomely for the best seats in the theatre, through to the servants paying a penny to stand as groundlings in the pit.

They will be performing pieces which run the gamut from village green to stately court and rowdy tavern to country house. As with any PIVA show, they bring the period alive with stories and tales about life in Shakespeare’s theatre.
