Solo by name, welcoming by nature: a birthday every Renaissance man should attend

Copenhagen Renaissance Music Festival is ten years old

Let us rejoice in remembering the era of rebirth and advancement with harps, violins, and lyres at the Copenhagen Renaissance Music Festival.

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the festival has chosen ‘Solo!’ as a theme and will once again be especially dedicated to music from the medieval age and early baroque repertoire.

Leading musicians like Ben Bagby on vocals and lyre, Joel Frederiksen on lute and bass, and Christopher Stembridge on baroque organ, will be performing.

And there are also master-classes, workshops and film screenings. (LAB)
