BOZEMAN -- Tickets are now on sale through the Bobcat Ticket Office for Montana State University School of Music's popular Madrigal Dinner, which will be held at 6:30 p.m. both Saturday, Dec. 3, and Sunday, Dec. 4, in the ballrooms of MSU's Strand Union Building. Seating begins at 6 p.m.
The traditional holiday feast will also be held 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 5, in Big Sky.
The MSU School of Music production, in its 51st year, transports contemporary guests to a Renaissance feast. For two nights the MSU Strand Ballrooms are transformed into a great baronial hall. MSU catering creates a traditional Renaissance dinner with a gourmet twist, knaves and wenches perform traditional carols sung for centuries during the twelve days of Christmas.
Paul Birkeland, manager of MSU Catering, and his crew will prepare a menu featuring a pork loin dinner or a vegetarian option with all the fixings. The dinner ends with traditional English pudding.
Tickets for the MSU performances are $35 and may be purchased at the Bobcat Ticket Office in the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, which is open 9 a.m-5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Parking for ticket buyers is provided in the lot directly below the ticket office. Tickets may also be purchased over the phone (994-CATS) or online at ticketswest.com (search “Madrigal Dinner”).
