Madrigal Dinners 2011

This year, the Madrigal Dinner took place over a three-day span (Dec.9-11), bringing color and fanfare to both Peru State College and Nebraska City. As usual, on Friday and Saturday evenings, this annual and festive event took place in the Peru State College Student Center.

As this series of photographs from Friday indicate, I took photographs of the various entertainments and then after the show added a variety of set shots; these photographs include the Madrigal Singers' rite of passage for new members, the kissing of the pig.

Of course, some people simply enjoy putting a lip lock on a pig:

The second group of photographs includes both the Saturday dinner at the college
and something new, a Sunday show in Nebraska City at Camp Catron hosted by the Nebraska City Apple Corps, a wonderful Barbershop Chorus that performed last month at Peru State College.

On all three nights, the Madrigal Singers entertained the audiences with both songs and opera.

Saturday, I filmed a couple selections from a popular opera from years past that the singers reprised, including The Geek Who Would Be King, Part One and Part Two.

In addition to videos from the opera, you can also enjoy
three songs the Madrigal Singers offered, including the beautiful "Help Me to Say Amen" and a whimsical number about poison ivy.

The Madrigal Dinners bring to a close this year's blog entries for term at Peru State College.

More to follow, soon enough.

I believe everything wrote made a great deal of sense.
But, what about this? what if you typed a catchier post title?

I ain't saying your content is not good, but suppose you added a post title to possibly grab a person's attention?
I mean "Madrigal Dinners 2011" is a little boring.

You could look at Yahoo's home page and see how they create article titles to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about everything've got to
say. Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little livelier.
