Good Lords and Ladies Fair! Let your 2014 holidays begin with Fredonia's second annual Madrigal Feaste! Join us in heralding the holiday season with a traditional 15th-century royal feaste and musical program complete with King and Queen, Court Jester, and more!

This collaborative event features talented faculty and students from the School of Music and the Department of Theatre and Dance, combining scrumptious food, music, and merriment on a grand scale. The performers, in full period costume, will lead the royal banquet from a central stage, while audience members dine and enjoy strolling singers and various chamber ensembles throughout the evening. Each course of the feaste will be heralded with a traditional song, and audience participation is encouraged! A concert of choral music brings the evening to a rousing close. We hope you'll join us for this truly unique and memorable event.
