The Concert Chorale once again joins the University Chamber Singers and Collegiate Singers for the 46th Annual Elizabethan Christmas Dinners. Held in the Plaster Student Union Ballroom from 6:15 to 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 30 through Saturday, Dec. 3, 2011, the dinners feature tantalizing entertainment and a delicious array of Olde English style food.
At 6:15 each evening, guests assemble in the third floor lobby of the Plaster Student Union, where revelry and serenading passes the time until the Grande Dining Hall opens at 7:00. The Chamber Singers serve as the royal court for the event, the Collegiate Singers sing and serve the meals, and the Concert Chorale performs the formal concert at the end of each dinner. The following is a description of the menu:
“This year’s menu features the King’s Butternut Squash Soup with Creme Fraiche and Chives, Salad of Winter Greens and Root Vegetables with Sherry Vinaigrette Dressing, the King’s Fowl stuffed with Cheese of the Goat, Fresh Spinach with a Cranberry Glaze, Potatoes Baked a Second Time, Green Beans, and a scrumptious new dessert for the Elizabethan Dinner menu – a Ginger Bread Trifle with Citrus Custard. All of this will be accompanied by an abundance of beverages! Vegetarian or an alternate entree selection may be indicated on ticket requests.”
Tickets are $25 for students, $30 for adults, and $27.50 each for groups of ten or more. Tickets can be purchased online. Hurry to reserve your seat at the table!
