Nevada Union Choir brings back Madrigal Dinner
The Nevada Union High School Chamber Choir, led by Rod Baggett, presents its Royal 2022 Madrigal Dinner on Friday, March 25 (7 p.m. seating) and Saturday, March 26 (5 p.m. seating) at the St. Joseph Cultural Center at 401 S. Church Street in Grass Valley.
Normally held during the holidays but delayed due to COVID-19 issues, the Madrigal Dinner is an event that defies description. It’s a concert, a history lesson, a dinner, a comedy and much more. But there is one thing that Madrigal Dinner is for sure: completely transportable not only to another place, but to another time: the 16th century. A time of knights and rogues, wizards and jesters, and kings and queens.
“The choir is so excited for this event! It’s been hard to see students not being able to perform live until this year. The Madrigal Dinner is something to look forward to as an incredible experience and also as a rite of passage when you are in the choir,” said choir director Rod Baggett. “Volunteers dust off costumes and props, shine dishes, and a lot of planning is underway for the big party. The singers rehearsed hard for the special dinner theater show – which includes both singing and acting. We are especially excited this year for our triumphant return.
Enter the Great Hall and be announced to His Royal Majesty, King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as you revel in all the pomp and splendor of a traditional English celebration – from the Wassail toast and presentation from the boar’s head to the theater and the song of the king’s royal court.
