The Guild of St. George, Inc.

Teaching History Through Interactive Theater

Dancing and Music
The Guild of St. George is the premier presenter of Renaissance court dances in California.  Guild members study under the tutelage of Angene Feves, Aurie Bradley, and Athene Mihalakis Kovacic to learn how to accurately and proficiently present the enchanting bransles, pavans, galliards, and intricate dances of the high Renaissance.  Dance lessons and practice sessions are held throughout the year to introduce the dances to new members and to keep everyone in practice.

Both chapters of the guild have relationships with period instrumental groups who provide live music for our dancing and performances.  The Queen’s Ha’penny Consort is a recorder consort in San Francisco consisting of members of the Guild of St. George.  The Southern California chapter has established an exciting relationship with the Wessex Consort, a mixed instrument early music ensemble (see

The southern chapter of the guild features the St. George Early Music Ensemble, a group of twelve singers who have mastered a wide repertoire of renaissance madrigals and ballettos.  In cooperation with the Wessex Consort, the EME also presents Elizabethan ayres and songs.  The St. George EME is open to all guild members by audition and rehearses twice a month.
