Northwest Missouri State University’s Madraliers will host their 44th annual Yuletide Feaste in December.
The event includes a banquet with performances by Recorder Consort, the Royale Brass Quintet and The Royal Theatrical Players.
“The annual tradition of the Yuletide Feaste is a tremendous opportunity for the students, faculty and citizens of the surrounding community to come together and celebrate the holiday season,” Dr. Brian Lanier, the Madraliers conductor and a Northwest professor of music, said. “The student performers are able to sing, act and play for the audience in a beautiful setting reminiscent of a banquet hall from the Renaissance.”
At the Yuletide Feaste, guests celebrate and rediscover Christmas through the evening’s programs and festivities, highly stylized after old England. The menu, performances and decorations are reminiscent of 16th century Tudor England.
The Feaste will take place at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 8, and Saturday, Dec. 9, in the J.W. Jones Student Union Ballroom.
Tickets are $31.50 and may be purchased by check or cash in Room 101 of the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. Credit card orders may be placed online at www.nwmissouri.edu/finearts/music/yuletide.htm.
Attendance is limited to 320 guests each evening, and all tickets are reserved. No tickets will be sold at the door.
