Good people of Ansteorra,


We, Dona Antonia Bianca Santiago da Lagos, Premier Bard of Ansteorra, Master Pendaren Glamorgan, and Lord Alden Drake, are pleased to announce an event unlike any other to take place in the fairest kingdom in the Knowne World…




The Shire of Rosenfeld has graciously agreed to host to the collegium in conjunction with Battle of Three Kings, on the weekend of November 12-14.   We invite bards of all ranks, skills, and styles, lovers of bardic performance, and all those in search of craft knowledge to come and partake of a day of classes and an evening of entertainment.


Bardic classes will be taught during the day.  Dona Antonia is in charge of the class schedule and class-related information.  If you are willing/available to teach, or provide class materials (or are willing to share a pavilion for use as a class room), please contact her at dsrummel at yahoo.com.  Once we have an idea of the number and types of classes being offered, we will post with a schedule.  We will also be contacting possible teachers directly, but we would love to hear from you first!  If you aren’t a teacher, but have a class idea in mind, send that in too and we will try and find a teacher for it.


The bardic circle, which will be held in the evening, is being coordinated by Master Pendaran.  Please get in touch with him if you would like to volunteer to help with set-up/decorating the circle area, or if you have any bardic circle related questions.  The format and fashion of the circle will be announced at a later date.  Master Pendaran can be reached at twinoak at cox-internet.com.


Lord Alden has begun work on The Rising Star (an Ansteorran Bard Book), which will be available at the event, and in the future in a downloadable format.  The book is to be a collection of pieces written by Ansteorrans, and will contain songs, stories, and poetry.  Space is limited to three pieces per person, and space is limited, so send in your piece early.  Not all pieces are guaranteed to be included, but a best effort will be made.  Songs are encouraged to be sent with musical notation, which will be included in the book wherever possible.  Along with your piece, please include permission to publish the piece. You can contact Lord Alden at alden_drake at sbcglobal.net.


If you have any other questions regarding the Ansteorran Bardic Collegium, please contact one of us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.  Additional information regarding this event will be forthcoming.


In service,

Dona Antonia, Master Pendaran, and Lord Alden
