The 2nd Annual Madrigal Dinner took place on December 2, 2012 at The Fields Clubhouse.
On Sunday, December 2nd, the Bloomington Early Music Festival, otherwise known as BLEMF, together with the Monroe County Civic Theater will be presenting a Madrigal Dinner. The dinner primarily acts as a fundraiser for the festival, but BLEMF Vice President Christine Kypiranides says the dinner is also a revival of a former Bloomington holiday pastime.
“We decided to join forces which is really exciting for us because that allows MCCT to really focus on the theatrical end of it—the jesters, the story, the costumes, and things like that—and really take advantage of the excellent music that comes out of the Jacobs School, since we’ll be utilizing talent from the Early Music Institute,”
– Eric Anderson, Jr.
