If you have never read one of my concert reports about the great Renaissance, then you don’t yet know how this music holds a very special place in my heart based on having grown up with it and it being stuff that my parents listened to again and again. That being said, I was very excited to get to see the band performing in concert once again and after a nice dinner my friend and I headed over to the Concert Hall at the NY Society for Ethical Culture where we had seen them twice before.

Once again we would find the wonderful music of Renaissance visiting our fair Metropolis and this time around the visit was extra special as they would be performing two of their most cherished albums in full. Yes, instead of a wider selection of signature staples, the band would give us a two part performance that featured the albums “Turn Of The Cards” and “Scheherazade and Other Stories” in their entirety. These two recordings first hit the public ear in 1974 and 1975 respectively. The show would once again be at the Concert Hall in the NYC Society for Ethical Culture and you can enjoy the full on report and some photos by clicking the bands logo below.

Renaissance had returned to NYC once again and was performing in Rockefeller Park as part of the River To River Festival. This free outdoor concert was going to pair them up with the legendary Steve Hackett (formerly of Genesis) and I could think of no two acts that would fit together so well.

In order to properly celebrate the 40th anniversary of the bands formation, Annie Haslam and Michael Dunford assembled a top-notch group of players and set off on a short tour delivering the music of Renaissance to their fans. I was not going to miss this one having been a fan of what they do for decades and headed down to The Concert Hall to check it out.
