BHSU Music Department Presents...
A Madrigal Dinner
BHSU Music Department Presents the Madrigal Dinner each year. Last year's performance was an full evening of food, music, and theatrical entertainment in beautiful Clare and Josef Meier Hall at the BHSU Chamber Singers’ presentation of “A Madrigal Dinner.” The Madrigal Dinner is an annual fund-raising event for BHSU’s music department featuring a small ensemble of 19 singers that specializes in performing early music each fall semester.
The singers, in Renaissance garb, will portray a sixteenth-century king, queen, and court who have invited the audience to a Christmas feast in the castle’s great hall. During the dinner portion of the evening, the court and the court jester will present a program including performances of several a cappella traditional carols such as “The Boar’s Head Carol,” “A Gloucestershire Wassail,” and of course, “Silent Night.”
In addition to great music, the audience will enjoy a wonderful meal catered by A’viands. Final menu to come.
The Madrigal Dinner typically sells out quickly, so make your reservations soon!
