Madrigal Dinner

With costumes, fanfare, and music, the spirit and splendor of the Renaissance comes alive when the Centenary Camerata presents Welcome Yule: A Madrigal Dinner Friday, Nov. 19 beginning at 7pm at the Scottish Rite Cathedral.

Madrigal cast photo

The event will send its audience into the past to the medieval world of court jesters and traditional music from the Renaissance era for a night filled with regal pageantry, entertainment, and traditional Christmas and secular songs of the period—all performed by the premier Chorale ensemble from the Hurley School of Music.

"There will be strolling entertainers, jugglers, fencing, a court jester, singers and of course, the royal court," said Christine Linschoten, senior music major and artistic director for the evening. "It’s a step back in time and will allow guests to feel like they are in the middle of a medieval castle in winter sitting down to an authentic meal and being treated like royalty by a consort, singers and jugglers."

Madrigal poster

Throughout the event, audience members will feast on a delicious meal while listening to a variety of Christmas carols and secular music presented by the singers of Camerata as well as the Chorale from Centenary College. There will also be solo singers, instrumentalists and other entertainment to provide distractions in the tradition of Renaissance court life.

Open seating tickets are $45 per person or a reserved table for eight with a preferred view available for $500. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Hurley School of Music at 318.869.5235 or from any member of Chorale or Camerata. Valet parking and security will be provided.
