Medieval Banquet

Medieval Studies at Geneseo held a Medieval Banquet at The Yard of Ale in Piffard, New York on Friday April 21, 2017. More than fifty guests gathered for medieval food and musical entertainment by Medieval Studies minors Matthew Burley and Noah Chichester (joined by fellow Geneseo Chamber Singers Erica Milliman and Gretta Cavatassi) and an early music group convened by Professor James Kimball (Music), with vocals by Professor Beverly Evans (French). The Medieval Banquet is made possible by generous support from the Office of the Provost, the Departments of English, History, and Languages and Literatures, and the Office of Student Life.
