Madrigal Dinners

The madrigal dinners take place the second weekend in December. There are three performances:
  • Saturday @2pm  (dessert only) -- $10
  • Saturday @6pm  (full dinner) -- $20
  • Sunday @2pm (full dinner) -- $20
The only difference between the three performances is the amount of food served. 

Performers include the madrigal singers; brass and recorder ensembles; and the servers, pages, and wenches, who join the madrigals in a mass song. 

Performers (singers, brass ensemble, and recorders) can order tickets beginning around November 1, using a form provided by the directors. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning at the fall choral concert. The public order form will be posted on the forms page of this website the day of the fall concert. We arrange table seating as orders come in, so there is a benefit to ordering tickets early! 

Friday Setup
We turn the entryway, lobby, and commons area into a medieval castle. With everyone helping, we get this done in a few hours after school on Friday. (Some jobs, like ironing fabric and hanging banners, start during the school day.)

Madrigal  families sign  up for setup jobs at the parent preview night in August. 

Group Photos
We take group photos of all performers after the dessert performance on Saturday, so that's when  you'll want your cameras at hand!

Clean Up
As soon as the guests leave the "castle" after Sunday's performance, we need all hands to help take down and pack away the decorations. We're usually done by 6 or 6:30pm

Library Time
After cleanup, friends and family leave the school and the directors and madrigal singers have a special end-of-season time together in the school library. This sometimes takes a while, so new parents should expect a late night for their singers.
