Tickets go on sale tomorrow for Montana State University School of Music's popular madrigal dinner, which will be held at 6:30 pm both Saturday, December 7, and Sunday, December 8, in the ballrooms of MSU's Strand Union Building. Details here:

The 48th annual MSU School of Music production transports contemporary guests to a Renaissance feast! Members of the MSU choral groups become knaves and wenches who perform the traditional carols sung for centuries during the 12 days of Christmas. Paul Birkeland, director of MSU Catering, and his crew will prepare a menu featuring a pork loin dinner or a vegetarian option with all the fixings. The dinner ends with traditional English pudding.

Tickets for the MSU performances are $35, and may be purchased at the Bobcat Ticket Office in the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse (open 9 am - 5 pm Monday through Friday). Parking for ticket buyers is provided in the lot directly below the ticket office. Tickets may also be purchased over the phone (994-CATS) or online at (search "madrigal dinner"). A convenience fee is required for purchase made online or over the phone. Tickets will be on sale until noon December 5, or until they are sold out.

The dinner will also be held Thursday, December 5, at Bucks T-4 in Big Sky. Tickets for that performance may be purchased by calling the Big Sky Association for the Arts at 995-2742.
