'Summertime' George Gershwin
Sponnaissance is a group of students from Sponne School learning about the music from the Renaissance period in a hands-on way.
The performance is designed to give a flavour of Renaissance musical life through song, instrumental repertoire and dance. Many of the students do not do singing as a first study and have learnt to play the crumhorns in a short period of time. It is a tremendous achievement to learn this complex repertoire from memory.
