Young people bring ancient music to life
At the heart of SHAK is a community of kids and teens growing up with a love of history and music -- and developing their skills to match it. Learn more about our programming:
You'll find the children of SHAK dancing Queen Elizabeth's favorite dance and singing amongst themselves in Shakespeare's English, Handel's Italian, or medieval Latin. They'll give you the traditional call of the Elizabethan ratcatcher at the drop of a hat! Young instrumentalists may be jamming together on medieval dance tunes or stately consort music from the Renaissance.
