Topics can be adapted for different age groups, and presented either as talks or more interactively depending on the group.

Medieval Musicians
Who were they, what instruments did they play, where did they travel, when did they perform?

Medieval Feasts and Festivals
Games, songs, dances, medieval recipes such as macaroni and cheese, and how to behave in court.

The Dance of Death (and other Scary Stuff)
Gargoyles, vampires, werewolves, mythical beasts, and the famous Dance of Death.

Longer Term ProjectS:
An "apprenticeship" in medieval performance for groups of children and/or teens.

Story-poems were a popular medieval form of entertainment. The group, assisted by the Ensemble, will prepare a performance with musical and dramatic elements, to be presented at the end of the workshop.
