Madrigal Dinner and Madrigal Singers 2008

Madrigal Singers Entertain at the Annual Madrigal Dinner

This Friday and Saturday evenings, December 12 and 13, Dr. Tom Ediger's Madrigal Singers once again, and for the eighteenth year in a row, provided wonderful fanfare, glorious color, bawdy humor, excellent food, and music, music, music.

The Madrigal Singers' offerings included the beautiful "Song of the Bells," one of the group's concluding numbers you can listen to on You Tube at this site.

This year's opera The Royal Conundrum featured all the members of the chorus in a story about a king with strange inventions, a queen who thinks she is a cat, and well, an heir born as a drum, and a second son whose name no one seems to remember (Duh).

This year, I made a video of the entire opera and uploaded here a section of the opera of around three minutes, a fun song, "The Well Bred Princess" from which the following photograph comes:

To view some photographs taken during the show, including a group of shots taken of parents, friends, and singers after the show, take a look at this site.

As always, you feel free to download whatever appeals to you. And give last year's performance a look by clicking this link.

In addition to photographs taken of the show and many of the people in attendance--and both nights enjoyed strong audiences--I took a number of posed pictures of the group, one of which is featured above.

To view these images, just click here.

This year's Madrigal Dinner marked the last performance for three long-time members of the group, Amy White, Apryl Schwartz, and Jeff Schwartz, pictured below with Dr. Tom Ediger.

We wish the three good fortune and thank them for their years of service and fanfare.

Dr. Tom Ediger and the Madrigal Singers wish everyone a productive final week of Fall 2008 and a wonderful and restful holiday season.
