Inside the Bardic Circle with Master Orlando Sforza

One of the things that I appreciate the most about this society is the ability to do and try so many different activities to see what you enjoy to find your niche. Our next gentle is certainly a Renaissance Man that manages to excel in everything he attempts. A master fencer, playwright, scribe, herald, actor (both in and out of the society!) and of course, an accomplished bard. I personally have always looked to him with an incredible admiration for his abilities to thrive at so many different activities and do so with incredible humility and an astounding sense of historicity. In short, I want to be Master Orlando when I grow up.

His current bardic projects include a new John Dowland song, “Wilt Thou Unkind Thus Reave Me.” In the long term, he is practicing his storytelling and learning to play the harp. We look forward to his new skills and engaging performances!
