Event

Fourth Annual Boar's Head Festival and Mid-Winter Gala
Don't miss San Francisco Renaissance Voices' most popular event of every season with this grand celebration of Twelfth Night and Mid-Winter presided over by her Royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth I!  The evening begins with a silent auction accompanied by the most delicious appetizers in the shire washed down with mead and wine and continues with an invitation from her Majesty to a musical celebration at her court, conducted by Assistant Music Director Katherine McKee.  This festive end to the Yuletide  season - The Boar's Head  is the world's oldest continuously celebrated Yuletide feast.  Legend has it that a scholar was studying a book of  Aristotle whilst walking through the forest on his way to Midnight Mass.  Suddenly, he was confronted by an angry wild boar.  Having no other weapon, the resourceful Oxonian rammed his metal-bound philosophy book down the throat of the charging animal, whereupon the brute choked to death.  That night the boar's head, finely dressed and garnished, was borne in procession to the dining room, accompanied by carolers singing "in honor of the King of bliss."  We continue this 650 year old tradition with the music and dance of Medieval through Contemporary England, as well as a mysterious, magical guest or two to complete the evening's entertainment. Our program includes abundant opportunities for you to sing along, and after the concert you'll enjoy a traditional feast featuring wassail, king's cake and, meat and vegetable pies.
