The Madrigal Dinner draws its influence from the Middle Ages with a focus on choral music. The meal is divided into courses, each of which is heralded with a traditional song. A play is performed between the courses and a concert of choral music concludes the festivities. Renaissance costumes are encouraged but not required.

Courtiers are Rose Stafford, Cindy Hilliard, Rose Skaife and Kris Montoya. Roy Bryan will be the juggler. Benjamin and Leah Brewer will be beggars.
