DESCRIPTION

GreenMatthews return to The Old Grammar School for this musical tour through the history of music.A Brief History Of Music takes in 600 years of musical history in 90 minutes! Beginning in the Middle Ages and ending up in the 20th century (and incorporating everything in between!) this fun and fast-moving show is a whistle-stop tour of Western musical history.Featuring long forgotten songs and tunes (not to mention jokes!) GreenMatthews paint a vibrant and vivid picture of our musical DNA, mixing the familiar and the obscure, the raucous and the reflective and the courtly and the commonplace.The show combines the vigour of the medieval period, the musical intricacy of the Renaissance, the grandeur of the Baroque and the pomp and bombast of Victoriana. Add to that the wit of Blackadder and 1066 And All That and the stage is set for a veritable musical feast!Complete with a bewildering array of instruments such as virginal, rauschpfeife and lute (and that’s just the first 100 years!) A Brief History of Music uses tunes, songs and humour to take you on a musical journey from which you won’t want to return!Suitable for 8+Doors open at 7.00pm
