Performances this year will be held on December 14 and 15 (Fri-Sat evening) and December 16 (Sun afternoon).
Elementary Choir (1st grade through 5th/6th grade, depending on numbers of involvement) will: sing as guests arrive from inside the banquet hall, sing two combined songs with all of the choirs, and sing a featured number during the dinner. The Elementary Choir may participate in a couple additional performances in the community in the lead-up to the dinner - these are still to be scheduled!
Junior Choir (6th/7th grade depending on numbers up through age 16) will: assist with seating and welcoming of the guests, sing two combined songs with all of the choirs, provide table-side dinner music, sing a featured number after dessert, and sing on the final number with the adult choirs. The Junior Choir may participate in a couple additional performances in the community in the lead-up to the dinner - these are still to be scheduled!
Please fill out the form, especially the rehearsal availability, as accurately as possible. Do not worry about whether or not conflicts will prevent involvement yet! After October 17th, we will assemble a rehearsal schedule that works for the majority of children -- children who participate are expected to attend at minimum half of the rehearsals leading up to the performances. Due to increased interest in our Madrigal Dinner, if we have high numbers of interested children, we may seek to limit the size of the groups based on availability.
Rehearsals will likely begin the week of October 22nd. Each group will typically rehearse 2 times a week at Monroe Grade School in Bartonville in the lead-up to the dinner. We can't wait to have you join us!
