Saint Julian, the patron saint of minstrels and wandering musicians,
was known for offering hospitality to weary travelers. This winter, in
the same tradition, the Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands welcomes
you in from the cold for a day of music and dance!
This event will be a music and dance schola, featuring classes on a
variety of musical subjects, as well as dance instruction. In
addition, there will be musical performances including an appearance
by the barony's own Debatable Choir. The evening will conclude with a
ball in the William Pitt Union's beautiful ballroom, with music
provided by the Debatable Consort. There will also be a Middle Eastern
dance area. And there are rumors that those rascals from I Genesii may
even make an appearance for a dance or two!
Delicious food will be available all day from a sideboard presented by
the BMDL Cooks' Guild under the supervision of THL Michelina Cenomani
da Trento. The site Is dry, so no alcohol please.
The event will be held on February 17, 2007, from 12:00 noon to
10:00pm at the William Pitt Union on the University of Pittsburgh main
campus, in the Ballroom, Kurtzman Room, Dining Rooms A & B, and room
511. The address is 3959 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15260.
The site fee will be $7.00 (including the all-day sideboard). Children
