This concert is hosted by The Matlock Music Society but tickets are available to non-members.
PIVA will be performing their popular Yuletide! show, celebrating the festive season by performing seasonal music and songs from Tudor times. Winter, in the 16th century, could be a harsh time with long nights and little fresh food, but the Twelve Days of Christmas were filled with feasting, music, dancing, singing, games and revelry. It was a time of entertainments, wassailing and mumming on the village green, masques and plays at court. PIVA will be capturing a flavour of these times by playing and singing music of the period and telling tales from the time.
The evening will be a perfect way to drive away the cold, dark nights of winter and prepare you for the Christmas festivities.
The performance consists of 2 x 45 minute sections. There will be an interval of approximately 15 minutes.
