Buck’s T-4 hosts the 20th annual Madrigal Dinner on Dec. 5

Carie Birkmeier




The Arts Council of Big Sky presents the 20th annual Madrigal Dinner in Big Sky on Monday, Dec. 5, at 5 p.m. in the Montana Room at Buck’s T-4 Lodge. This event is considered by many as the traditional opening of the Christmas season and a highlight for the Big Sky community.

Tickets for the Madrigal Dinner, which historically sells out, include a three-course dinner prepared by Buck’s T-4 chefs, as well as festive music from the Montana State University Montanans, the MSU Brass Quintet and the MSU Chorale.

The evening begins with a no-host bar at 5 p.m., followed by seating for the dinner promptly at 6 p.m. in preparation for the ceremonial procession of the lord and lady of the manor and their guests. “Olde English” customs are the theme throughout the evening, including fanfares introducing the ceremonial procession, the wassail bowl and Christmas toast, the boar’s head procession and the flaming pudding dessert.

The MSU Montanans serenade guests throughout the evening and the MSU Chorale presents a concert finale. The dinner closes with the audience joining the musicians in singing familiar carols. This year marks the 51st annual Madrigal Dinner, produced by the MSU School of Music, and the 20th year the production has traveled to Big Sky.

Tickets are by advanced reservation only. Call (406) 995-2742 or visit for further information.
