Madrigal Singers

Hear ye! Hear ye!

The Minnehaha Madrigal Singers provides a fun challenge for eighteen of the school’s finest vocalists. We explore many of the beautiful songs from the Renaissance period and work to develop a superior vocal blend and performance ethic. The main focus of the group is the annual Madrigal Dinner held each February. The gym is transformed into Minnehaha Manor and 700 guests enjoy an authentic feast, play and concert over the two performances. Members of the three MA choirs also participate fully in this showcase event. The Madrigal Singers serve at various community and school events which afford us the opportunity to explore different a cappella styles of music.

Rehearsals are held each Tuesday and Thursday 7:40 – 8:30 a.m. in the choir room. Although our main focus is the Madrigal Dinner we also participate in homecoming activities, choral concerts, contest, and several community events throughout the year.

Any student enrolled in Singers is eligible to audition each May. Vocal skill, sight-reading, dramatic readings and improvs make up this audition.
