When she was a sophomore, my youngest sister joined choir at her school. So last year and this year, we’ve attended the chorus program’s madrigal dinner program. And I love it.
If you’ve never been, it’s like dinner theater. It’s got a storyline – usually a funny one and the singers perform a bunch of holiday music, in English and in Latin. The audience has a meal and during the meal, the singers come around and visit each table. Some try and entertain with juggling and stuff and there’s a wassail toast during the program as well.
My favorite is the Carol of the Bells, and there’s nothing like hearing a choir – especially a really good one, like my sister’s is – sing that song in person. It’s so awesome.
