Glenside ready for Renaissance

July 31, 2017 by  

Renaissance, a group formed in the 1960s by Keith Relf, who had been with the legendary rock band, The Yardbirds, is still going strong, and will be appearing in Glenside this fall, according to an article in Broadway World.

The band, with singer Annie Haslam as its vocalist, blends progressive rock with symphonic and classical influences to create a unique sound. They are often credited with being the band that uses a full orchestra in their recordings most successfully.

The band has toured widely, and has just finished a successful tour of South America. They have appeared at New York’s legendary Carnegie Hall, in concert with the New York Philharmonic, and have also performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London. On the latter occasion, they appeared with the Royal Chorale Society and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

This fall, they are planning to tour the Northeastern United States during their ‘Symphonic Journey’ tour, on which they plan to include four concerts that will feature a ‘10-piece Chamber Orchestra’, comprised of a percussion section, brass, woodwinds, and strings, all handpicked.

The Glenside performance will be at the Keswick Theater on October 27. Currently, it is anticipated that this performance will be filmed for a DVD release at a later date.

Performances are often promoted with the help of a poster printing company, which might create a colorful poster commemorating the concert.
