USI 49th Annual Madrigal Feaste Leads Holiday Festivities With Renaissance Food And Music


The University of Southern Indiana Chamber Choir will present the 49th annual Madrigal Feaste from Thursday, November 29 through Sunday, December 2 in Carter Hall located in University Center West on the USI campus.

First performed in 1969 and USI’s most enduring musical tradition, the Madrigal Feaste is a festive dinner and concert set in Renaissance Ireland. Attendees witness the reenactment of a royal feast, with processionals and holiday music accompanying each item on the menu as performers and guests welcome the holiday season.

The USI Chamber Choir will entertain with selections of old English Madrigals, Irish traditional folk songs and carols, as well as stirring choral selections for the holiday season from a wide variety of European repertory. This year’s menu will include green tossed salad, hot wassail, soup of beef and barley, roasted chicken, holiday roasted potatoes, fresh steamed vegetables, bread pudding with rum sauce, tea and coffee.

Tickets are $28 for USI students and seniors (60+) and $34 for adults and non-USI students. Doors open at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 1:00 p.m. for the Sunday matinee. To purchase tickets, visit or call at 812-461-5237.
