Yuletide Feaste

History

The history of our Feaste celebration began in 2011 when Dr. Martin wanted to re-create the Feaste celebrations he celebrated at Kent State University. Working with permissions secured by Kent's former director, the event was able to take place in December, 2011. Costumes were created and coordinated with the help of Ruth Minor and the Gilbert Theater. With a blast of the herald trumpet, Methodist University began their own Feaste celebration!! It continues, as a joint venture of Friends of Music at Methodist and the Methodist University Music Department. Taking its participants and audience back to the time of Queen Elizabeth I, the Feaste is a Renaissance-style dinner engagement featuring an elegant four-course meal, a festive banquet hall setting, a large cast of costumed characters straight out of Tudor England, and MU students singing carols appropriate for the Christmas season.

The Court

This season represents our third season presenting Feaste with each year becoming more special and diverse. This year will feature:

  • Queen Elizabeth's court (The Methodist University Chorale)
  • The Methodist University Chamber Singers
  • Trumpet Fanfares by Jamario Covington
  • Early music provided by our partnership with the Early Musick Ensemble from UNCP
  • Feats of magic and juggling by "Just Joey"

The Feaste

Of course, our meal is coordinated through our own Methodist University Catering services provided by Aramark.

  • Dates: December 6 and 7, 2013
  • Show: 7:30 pm - doors open at 7 pm
