This annual dinner and performance has a medieval theme and each year a different lord and lady serve as hosts. This year’s lord and lady welcomed us:

The Lord Welcomes Us

The Herald!

The Herald announced each step in the evening to us, including the presentation of the Boar’s Head by two Schola Choristers:

Always one to nurture young talent, the evening featured many high school choristers took their turn conducting. A surprise bonus was the premiere performance of the song, “This is Our Homeland,” by high school senior Grace Coberly.

Conductor Northway introduced the song, saying that it should be a new standard.

Everyone within sight at my table teared up during this touching song.

And finally, the evening drew to a close.

A bittersweet evening for high school seniors, as they enjoyed their final Boar's Head performance.
