5th Annual Boar's Head Festival & Mid-Winter Gala with guest artist Brian Asawa, counter-tenor
Join San Francisco Renaissance Voices (Katherine McKee, Music Director) for this 650 year old tradition celebrating Twelfth Night ... Our annual Boar's Head Festival & Mid-Winter Gala, first performed by us in January of 2011, delights audiences young and old alike, and is our most popular event of each and every season! This evening of feasting, libations, music and dramatic surprises takes place at the court of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth I and we are especially delighted to be joined by guest artist internally-renowned counter tenor Brian Asawa this year! During this year's Festival the ambassador and members from the Imperial Court of the Emperor Kangxi appear in her majesty's court bringing with them the music and dance of Ancient China for an eclectic concert when joined by our choristers performing the music of Medieval and Renaissance England. We'll be joined by our dance troupe San Francisco Renaissance Dancers, lutenist Adam Cockerham on theorbo and Margaret Davis on celtic harp and recorders. The evening begins with a reception and silent auction, followed by the concert at court; the evening ends with a grand Renaissance feast featuring traditional foods of the season - all washed down with generous amounts of wine and mead! Any attire you choose for her majesty's court is fine ... however those of you who choose to come in period costume or masque will be especially welcomed!
