ASU Concert Chorale: “A Renaissance Madrigal Dinner”
Dinner seating will begin at 6 p.m. with guests “heralded” into the Cactus Hotel dining room. “Royal Chef” Charles Blanek will prepare a three-course meal each night, complete with iced tea and hot wassail for toasting. The Concert Chorale will entertain guests with a cappella singing in large and small ensembles, featuring Renaissance, Baroque and contemporary music, throughout the evening.
Tickets are $25 per person and must be purchased in advance from Marilyn Flage, Cactus Hotel general manager, whose office is located on the second floor of the hotel, and seating is limited.
The Madrigal Dinner is a revival of a tradition that dates back to 1983, when the ASU Concert Chorale was under the direction of Wayne Eastwood. ASU alumna Patti Wetzel, who performed in the first production, will assist with this year’s event.
