Decorah High School's 27th Annual Madrigal Dinner will take place on Sunday, January 19, at 5:00 p.m. at the Hotel Winneshiek Steyer Opera House in downtown Decorah. (Please be seated by 4:50 p.m.)

Advanced tickets are $23 each and are being sold at the Hotel Winneshiek and the Decorah High School main office.

Only 224 tickets are available, and they will be sold until 2 p.m. Monday, Jan. 13. If guests would like to sit together, tickets must be purchased as a group. Each table will have eight people seated at it, and seating will be assigned with consideration given to the order tickets are purchased. Each ticket includes a meal fit for a king of wassail punch, salad, dinner rolls, porketta-style roasted pork with golden raisins and a savory sauce on a bed of saffron rice accompanied by roasted vegetables (advance order vegetarian entrée available), house-made chocolate bread pudding with pistachio crème anglaise, and coffee or hot tea; music of the Renaissance performed by vocalists, recorders, strings, and brass; and the comedic play, "Sleepless In the Castle."

Make plans now to join the DHS Music Department on a journey to 15th Century England. Last year this event was sold out.
