PIVA The Renaissance Collective

PIVA are one of the UK’s leading early music ensembles. Playing an array of over 40 period instruments, their fresh, innovative and energetic approach has captured the imagination of audiences wherever they perform. We are delighted to welcome them back to Keswick.

This December PIVA will help ease you into the Christmas spirit, celebrating the Yuletide season by performing seasonal music and songs from Tudor and Elizabethan times. Winter in the 16th century could be harsh, but the Twelve Days of Christmas were filled with feasting, music, dancing, singing and revelry. PIVA will be capturing a flavour of that era, playing and singing music of the period and telling tales from the time.
