celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1969 moon landing, Anne
and Rob Burns, A Reasonable Facsimile, take audiences back
even further: over 350 years! Their program “Renaissance Music
Is out of This World” introduces the universal appeal of music
from the Renaissance. The duo also references early astronomers
Copernicus and Galileo and fictionalized trips to the moon from
the 1600s by authors Godwin and De Bergerac. This program ties into
the 2019 Summer Reading Program theme, “A Universe of Stories.”
These costumed performers bring history alive with
instruments from the Renaissance: shawms, drums, crumhorns, bagpipes,
recorders, lutes and more. Anne and Rob incorporate
humor and audience participation to introduce young audiences to
earlier music. Anne and Rob play lively, danceable
music that the audience can sing and clap along with.
