2006 Christmas Madrigal Feaste Dec. 1, 2

The University of Louisiana at Monroe's annual Christmas Madrigal Feaste is fast approaching; performances are Dec. 1, 2 in Brown Gymnasium at 6 p.m. each night.

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 Deborah Chandler, will perform Christmas music, as well as traditional Madrigal music. The castle setting will be resplendent with candles, glittering costumes and the symbolic greenery.

Tickets are: $35 individual, and premium tables of eight for $400. A portion of the ticket sales will fund scholarships for students. 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, and must be picked up at the VAPA office, Biedenharn Hall Room 105.

The event is co-sponsored by VAPA and Campus Activities Board.
