University of the Cumberlands presents 40th Madrigal dinners


WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. – The University of the Cumberlands Music Department will present its 40th annual production of the Madrigal dinners at 6:30 p.m., November 29, 30 and December 1, in the TJ Roberts Dining Hall.

The show is performed in the Elizabethan style, with actors in period costume. Students who are members of the university’s Chamber Choir will serve as the actors and singers who will entertain spectators with a variety of Christmas songs both traditional and more contemporary. The Madrigal event includes a dinner and the setting is designed in emulation of an Elizabethan court.

Cumberlands’ Madrigal was started in 1967 by Dr. Harold Wortman, former head of the music department at the school. The Madrigal has been popular for all of its 40 years and is well known as a jovial kick-off for the holiday season. Students, faculty and community members alike enjoy the program.

Tickets may be purchased by calling the music department at (606) 539-4332. Tickets are $25 each.
