World-renowned for its highly polished, energetic and richly varied performance, Piffaro, The Renaissance Band-a Philadelphia based ensemble, has delighted audiences throughout the United States, Europe, Canada and South America. Since 1980 Piffaro has been performing the music of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries to growing audiences throughout the Delaware Valley. The ensemble presents its concert series in Philadelphia and Wilmington, and also tours throughout the world. Piffaro recreates the elegant sounds of the professional wind bands of the late Medieval and Renaissance periods as well as the rustic entertainments of the peasantry. Shawms, sackbuts, dulcians, recorders, krumhorns, bagpipes, lutes and guitars provide the fascinating aural dimensions to an entertaining Piffaro performance. Audiences from Seattle to Spoleto, Italy, have marveled at the virtuosity of the ensemble, its precision and impeccable intonation, but most of all its vitality and enthusiasm.
