The Third Presbyterian Church will present its bi-annual production of the "Boar's Head and Yule Log Festival." This Medieval pageant began in 1340 at Magdalen College, Oxford, England. It blends sacred and secular music to celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany (also known as "Twelfth Night"). The production includes a cast and choir of more than 100, including a king and queen, lords and ladies, cooks and servants, dancers, woodsmen, and those who ushered in the Christ child. The Chancel Choir of the Third Church will perform, accompanied by organ, brass, strings, and percussion. A ringing of the hand bells and madrigals begins 30 minutes prior to each performance, and a reception will be held each night.
The Boar's Head and Yule Log Festival takes place Saturday, January 11, and Sunday, January 12, 4 p.m. at the Third Presbyterian Church, 4 Meigs St. Free-will offering. ThirdPresbyterian.org, 271-6537.
