The University of Southern Indiana Chamber Choir will present the 48th annual Madrigal Feaste from Thursday, November 30 through Sunday, December 3, in Carter Hall located in University Center West on the USI campus.
First performed in 1969 and USI’s oldest 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. Dinner selections will include green tossed salad, hot wassail, soup of beef and barley, roasted chicken, holiday roasted potatoes, fresh steamed vegetables, and bread pudding with rum sauce.
Tickets are $28 for USI students and seniors (60+) and $34 for adults. Doors open at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 12:30 p.m. for the Sunday matinee. To purchase tickets, visit USI.edu/madrigals or call at 812-461-5237.
