Longtime feast For longevity, the Ashland University Feaste, started in 1976 by late choral director Calvin Rogers, takes the prize. The school’s 44th annual event will run before Thanksgiving this year, for five shows at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 20-24 in Redwood Hall, 1005 King Road. Led by choral director Rowland Blackley, the 17-member Chamber Singers perform ceremonial music, Christmas carols and madrigals based in Elizabethan England. Music includes “The Boarshead Carol,” “Gloucestershire Wassail” and a final “Silent Night” by candlelight.
“I inherited this as a strong traditional event,” said Blackley, who performed in Kent State’s madrigal feasts when he was a graduate student. The Madrigal Players also will offer a comedic play and improvisation. Rounding out the cast will be fanfare trumpeters, the court jester, butler and serving wenches. Each night, the four-course meal by the university’s in-house catering service culminates with flaming bread pudding. While other Northeast Ohio feasts have fallen by the wayside over the years, AU’s has continued because it keeps its costs down by keeping all of the work in-house, from food to costumes to servers from the choral program. The players offer a 15-minute skit that Blackley described as “fractured fairytales.” The jester and his troupe interact with guests during dinner, and the royal court serenades tableside. Tickets cost $28 for adults or $18 for children under 12. Children’s tickets can only be purchased directly through the box office at 419-289-5125. For adult tickets, see www.ashland.edu/tickets or call the box office. Doors open at 6 p.m.Read about the other feasts throughout Northeast Ohio here.
This highly talented quartet of teacher-performer professionals represents a diverse group of Ohio universities through their teaching (Capital University, Mariettta College, Ohio University, Otterbein University, West Virginia University), along with a substantial listing of symphonies and chamber ensembles from their performances around the state and beyond (Ashland Symphony Orchestra, Central Ohio Symphony, Columbus Symphony, Westerville Symphony, Mansfield Symphony, Austin (TX) Symphony, Fort Wayne Philharmonic, Hawaii and Honolulu Symphonies, West Virginia Symphony, ProMusica Chamber Orchestra, Famous Jazz Orchestra, Breckenridge Music Festival Chamber Orchestra, and the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble).
Dr. Kimberlee Goodman, Lindsey Goodman, Lisa Jelle and Alison Brown Sincoff share a mutual passion for promoting all things flute in central Ohio and impacting the global future of chamber music collaborations within the setting of the quartet. They formed PANdemonium4 in 2016, and have performed at two National Flute Association Annual Conventions and in seven different states. They released their first studio recording titled Bolling & Beyond: Lisa Jelle, Jazz-Inspired Flute. Mark Flugge Remembered.
For their concert in Ashland, they will be joined by percussionist Liz Procopio and bassist Jeremey Poparad who are also teaching-performer professionals while teaching in their discipline at Ashland University.
