Tickets on sale for Third Annual Madrigal Feaste

Tickets are now on sale for Tennessee Tech University’s Third Annual Madrigal Feaste, set for Friday and Saturday, April 25 and 26, at the Cookeville Towne Center on West 1st St.

Guests at the event will be seated at 6:30 p.m., and the opening dinner procession of servers dressed in Renaissance costumes will begin at 7 p.m.

" Throughout the dinner — which will be provided by Grade A Catering — participants will enjoy the hijinks of jesters, the skill of fencers and, of course, the talent of many singers," said Susan Smith, director of TTU’s Madrigal Singers.

" The royal court and guests will also be entertained by a comical morality play entitled Noah and Joan of Ark," she said.

Tickets for this year's Madrigal Feaste must be purchased in advance and are on sale in Rooms 355, 365 and 362 of TTU's Bryan Fine Arts Building, at the Joy of Music on the Cookeville Square and at Charlie’s Sub Shop.

Prices are $25 for adults and $20 for students. The cost of unused tickets cannot be refunded. Proceeds benefit choral activities, such as school outreach programs and conference travel.
