Dec. 3-5 Yuletide Madrigal Feast tickets on sale

Tickets are now on sale for the Yuletide Madrigal Feast, to be presented by the Indiana State University School of Music, Dec. 3-5 at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 215 N. Seventh St.

Now in its 66th year, the Indiana State Madrigal Dinners are re-creations of the Renaissance feasts which took place in the great baronial halls throughout England during the 12 days of Christmas.

One who lived in England during the 16th century and was lucky enough to be one of the favored guests would be dazzled with the stunning pageantry, bawdy humor, endless amounts of succulent food and extraordinary music.

The line between sacred and secular would be thinly drawn. One moment a person might be regaled with the most risqué humor and the next he or she might listen to or sing the most exquisite and ethereal sacred music.

“This event should be a highlight of Terre Haute’s holiday activities,” said Scott Buchanan, director of choral activities at ISU. “An evening of wonderful music with singers, period costumes and exquisite food in a beautiful venue. … What more could you ask for to usher in the season of Christmas? Everyone involved in this venture takes great pride in producing an unforgettable evening for our guests, and we look forward to sharing the holiday spirit with them.”

Performers each night will include the Sycamore Singers and Brass Quintet. The meal, catered by Boo’s Crossroads Café, will include traditional wassail, cranberry Christmas salad, roasted pork loin, breaded stuffing, roasted red potatoes, green beans, rolls and black forest cake. Wine will be available for purchase before the festivities.

Cost is $30 per person. Reservations can be made by calling 812-237-4590, or guest can purchase tickets at the choral office in the Landini Center for the Performing and Fine Arts, Room 222.
