The Edinburgh Renaissance Band offers:-

Concerts of early music

The Band organises its own series of concerts in Edinburgh each year. Highlights are the Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows and the very popular family Christmas concert. It has also played at early music festivals both in the UK and abroad.

Performances for music societies

Specially devised programmes aimed at introducing audiences to the instruments and repertoire of the Renaissance are available, and special programmes can be provided to meet individual societies' requirements.

Music for corporate entertaining and conferences

The Band has extensive experience in providing music suitable for receptions and banquets, including ceremonial fanfares as required. Ensembles of any size can be provided, from two or three musicians up to the full splendour of the complete Band.

Educational visits and lecture recitals

Generations of children have been introduced to the delights of early music and the fascinating diversity of the instruments through the Band's activities, including school visits and special concerts for young people.

Collaboration with historical dancers

Audiences are always delighted to see the Edinburgh Early Dancers perform some of the historical dances that are part of the Band's large repertoire of early music. Dance workshops provide opportunities to learn some of the dances and the Band has organised several highly successful medieval balls.

The Band is available to play at most events requiring Early Music and, through the Musical Director Professor Murray Campbell, will provide programmes specially researched and tailored to a particular place or period.
