Indiana State University Sycamore Singers present Madrigal Dinners

TERRE HAUTE — The Indiana State University Sycamore Singers will present its 64th annual Yuletide Madrigal Dinners beginning at 7 p.m. Dec. 9 and 10 in the Grete Hall of St. Stephens Episcopal Church, at 215 N. Seventh St.

The madrigal feast, brought to England from Italy during the 16th century, was a type of private, often informal, dining and singing entertainment at the castles and homes of the gentry.

It is often comedic in nature, and today is a form of dinner theater held by schools and churches during the Christmas season.

ISU choristers dressed in Renaissance period costumes will present a variety of festivities throughout the evening, including royal toasts, the procession of the boar’s head, the presentation of an enjoyable play titled “The Royal Wedding,” and a concert of seasonal, classical choral selections.

Between the toasts and play will be a holiday dinner of cranberry salad, roast loin of pork, bread stuffing, roasted red potatoes, green beans, dinner rolls, dessert, and an assortment of beverages, all catered by Boo’s Crossroads Café.

Tickets for the event must be reserved and paid for by Monday at a cost of $30 per person. Reservations will be confirmed and tickets sent once payment has been received. Payment for reservations can be made by check, money order, or cash, but credit cards cannot be accepted. Cancellations cannot be refunded.

For further information contact the Indiana State University School of Music Choral office at (812) 237-4590, or by coming to the Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts, Room 222, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to make reservations in person.
