La Camerata Madrigal Singers "Yuletide Feaste" in Grand Island
Nov 24, 2012 - Nov 26, 2012 Spirits 6:30pm; Dinner 7:00pm
Balz Banquet Hall, 3rd & Sycamore St, Grand Island
La Camerata Madrigal Singers will present the 27th Annual "Merry Olde 16th Century Yuletide Feaste." The 16-member singing group was formed in 1986, performing in ornate Elizabethan costumes and signing not only on stage, but throughout the audience during the four-course meal. In addition to the singing performance, which includes madrigals, period music and contemporary pieces, a playlet including singers and the court jester will be presented.
The "banquet hall" will be transformed into a medieval-looking castle, complete with Christmas trees and armored knight sentries. Many guests attend every year and state that the event is the perfect beginning for the Christmas season.
