The Arts Council of Big Sky is hosting its 15th annual Madrigal Dinner, Monday, Dec. 5, at 5 p.m. in the Buck’s T-4 Lodge Ballroom. As a traditional opening of the Christmas season, this event is one of the highlights for the Big Sky community.

Tickets include a three-course dinner prepared by the chefs at Buck’s, as well as festive music. The evening begins with a no-host bar at 5 p.m., followed dinner seating at 6 p.m., then the 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.

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.
