The evening will include a home-cooked pasta meal served by choir members, while the Madrigal Players will present a 15th century-style skit entitled "May the Farce Be With Thee" in period costumes with music provided by the Madrigal Choir comprised of North Hills students.
A Madrigal dinner is a 21st century recreation of the Renaissance feasts held in the great baronial halls throughout England during the twelve days of Christmas. The feasts were filled with stunning pageantry, bawdy humor, endless amounts of succulent food and extraordinary music.
“We were thrilled with the response to the event in recent years and are excited that we have created a new tradition for the community and choral program at North Hills,” said choral director Shaun Cloonan.
Raffle baskets will be available during the evening. Proceeds will benefit the North Hills Choral Program's continuing activities, which include a trip to Hershey this spring to compete in the Music in the Parks festival.
