Madrigal Dinners bring holiday spirit to Drake

November 26, 2013

Drake University’s Chamber Choir will present their annual Madrigal Dinners on Saturday, Dec. 7 and Sunday, Dec. 8. This interactive, holiday celebration is the perfect way to share an evening of good food, music, and laughter with friends and family. The dinner will start at 7 p.m. on Saturday and 5 p.m. on Sunday in Drake University's Olmsted Center.

The Madrigal Dinners are fully costumed and staged to recreate an Elizabethan Yuletide feast. Members of the Drake Chamber Choir will bring the event to life by serenading guests as well as acting and dancing. The six-course meal is $50 per person and includes wine. All seats are reserved and tickets must be purchased on or before Dec. 2.

At the Sunday show, all Drake employees and their guests will receive a $10 per ticket discount, and Drake students who have a Sodexo meal plan can charge $25 of the total ticket price to their flex points and pay for the other half of the ticket.

Visit www.drake.edu/madrigal for more information or call the Drake Fine Arts Box Office to order tickets at 515-271-2841.

Drake’s Chamber Choir is under the direction of Aimee Beckmann-Collier, who can be reached for any additional questions at aimee.beckmann-collier@drake.edu.
