2005 Christmas Madrigal Feaste Coming Soon to ULM

The University of Louisiana at Monroe's annual Christmas Madrigal Feaste is fast approaching; performances are Dec. 1, 2 and 3 in Brown Gymnasium at 6 p.m. each night. The event is now sponsored by the entire School of Visual and Performing Arts with faculty and students from each area working on the event.

The Christmas Madrigal Feaste at ULM is a grand celebration in the tradition of Elizabethan England. The Galliard Brass usher in the guests with festive music played from the front of the hall. Brass fanfares introduce the different courses of the Feaste; courtly music of the Renaissance is played by the recorder consort.
Guests will enjoy a sumptuous meal. The ULM Chamber Singers, under the director of Dr. Deborah Chandler, will perform music appropriate for Christmas, as well as traditional Madrigal music. The castle setting will be resplendent with candles, glittering costumes and the symbolic greenery.
Tickets are: $30 individual, $45 individual/scholarship and premium tables of eight for $400. The extra money from scholarship tickets and table sales go into the Foundation for scholarships for students selected from those that participated in the Feaste. Tickets are available, first come first serve, in the VAPA office.

Reservations are required and tickets must be pre-paid by check or cash. Tickets will NOT be available for purchase at the door. All payments must be received by Nov. 28 so that the correct number of dinners for each night may be ordered.

For more information, call or come by the Visual and Performing Arts office on ULM campus at 105 Biedenharn Hall or call 318-342-3811. Tickets may be reserved by phone, but they must be picked up and paid for by November 28.
