The Coppell High School Commons will be transformed from the 21st Century to the Middle Ages when the Coppell High School Madrigals choir presents its 18th annual madrigal dinner, "A Feast of Carols: A Tale of Two Jesters" on November 30 and December 1.The evening replicates entertainment common in Royal Courts about 500 years ago.This evening will include a full dinner, choral music performances and a play.
Zeb White, a CHS senior and Madrigal co-captain, has been attending Madrigal Feasts for four years. “It’s always magical to experience the fantastic singing and performing that takes place at Feast,” he said. “This year, we’re hoping to take it to the next level by incorporating traditional Madrigal Christmas songs with some incredible new pieces and a hilarious play.”
Michelle Pitcher, also a senior co-captain, adds “Ever since I worked as a server at the Feast my freshman year, I have wanted to be a part of the experience. The Feast is such an incredible event; it’s amazing to see the commons transform into a 14th century dining hall, and to see the result of hours upon hours of hard work. The students in Madrigals are working incredibly hard to make this year’s Feast the best one yet.”
Under the direction of CHS Choir Director Joshua Brown and Associate Choir Director William McLean, the Madrigals choir is comprised of 24 students ranging from sophomores to seniors.
