Hear ye! Hear ye! On Dec. 4-5, JSU Choral Activities will present the Annual Renaissance Madrigal Dinner in ye olde Leone Cole Auditorium. Join us for an evening of music and high (and low) drama, featuring the JSU Chamber Singers and A Cappella Choir! Members of the Oxford High School Choir, under the direction of JSU alumna, Holly Luke, will be featured guests.

The Madrigal Dinner is a dinner theatre event written and produced by JSU Choral Activities under the direction of Dr. Patricia Corbin. Both evenings will begin with Wassail followed by a multi-course feast while members of the JSU Chamber Singers and A Cappella Choir enact a farcical drama. There will be singing, good and bad jokes and high and low drama. This year’s story is entitled Order in the Court!, and was written by Gavin Haynes, Jessie Hill, Jared Shiver, Megan Day and Dr. Patricia Corbin.
