Troy Music Hall Welcomes Renaissance 2022: The Legacy Tour
The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall is thrilled to welcome Renaissance 2022: The Legacy Tour on October 27th. This celebration of Annie Haslam’s 75th year displays Classic Renaissance with the Renaissance Chamber Orchestra and music from Haslam’s solo career.
Renaissance is a band with a rich history unique unto themselves as progressive rock pioneers who rose from the ashes of the seminal UK rock band, The Yardbirds. Acclaimed for their unique blending of progressive rock with classical and symphonic influences, the band’s career has now spanned over fifty years, spearheaded by the five-octave voice of Annie Haslam, and the masterful songwriting skills of the late Michael Dunford and Betty Thatcher. They are widely considered to be the band that most successfully and routinely utilized the sound of a full orchestra in their recordings.
The band has toured throughout the world and has performed at Carnegie Hall with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as the Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Royal Chorale Society. Renaissance had a top ten hit in the UK with their song “Northern Lights” which still demands airplay to this day.
In this concert season of 2022, the band will be traveling internationally and throughout the U.S, presenting a special show in celebration of Annie Haslam’s 75th birthday. The repertoire will include many of the Renaissance classics along with special selections from Haslam’s many solo releases.
Additionally, this show will include the Renaissance Chamber Orchestra, a hand-picked assemblage of 10 orchestral players to bring back the sound of the classic albums.
Tickets go on sale to Music Hall Members on Thursday, April 14th at noon. and are available at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall Box Office, 30 Second Street, Troy, Monday through Friday 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. More information on the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall and upcoming programs are available on the website at www.troymusichall.org.
