Come usher in spring while enjoying a veritable banquet of food, drink, and song while you support your Chester River Chorale at Old St. Paul’s Church near Fairlee on Saturday, March 16 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.
The evening will be filled with feasting, wandering minstrels, jesting, and more. Chestertown actor Brad Chaires will be your court jester and master of ceremonies, and will produce a short play and several comic vignettes for your amusement.
Let your ears feast on madrigals by the Chorale’s River Voices as the banqueting for the Chorale’s annual fundraiser proceeds. You are encouraged to don a Renaissance or Baroque outfit if you wish, but costumes are not required.
A $5-a-ticket raffle will select two people to have the honor of being the Rulers of the Feast. The rulers will each be adorned with special accessories to designate their royalty, and will get a commemorative goblet to take home.
Why is your Chorale putting on this festive show? To raise money, of course. Tickets are $60 for general seating which includes a free drink from the cash bar. Tickets are $100 for the Royal Court table at the head of the hall, with priority serving and unlimited alcoholic beverages. All tickets include appetizers, dinner, dessert, and non-alcoholic beverages. Seating is limited. Tickets must be purchased by March 9. They can be purchased at the Chorale’s website www.chesterriverchorale.org. Also, tickets can be reserved by calling Andrea Neiman at 443-837-7080, and leaving a voice mail with name, phone number, and number of tickets desired
