Ye Olde English Madrigal Feaste

This weekend our high school held its Madrigal Dinners in the new cafetorium and stage area. The tables were all lovely, and the meal was delicious. Everything looked very festive and medieval. The Madrigal singers and actors did a wonderful job. Mikaela's dress was ready in time and just beautiful (thank you, Kathy!). We set her hair with hot curlers and twisted part of it up and decorated it with a jeweled ribbon. Most of these photos were taken during the dress rehearsal when her curls didn't last as well. Also, some of the singers were not at the rehearsal and others weren't in complete costume.

Mikaela, Hope, & Chelsea

I've added some video clips to give a sampling of the evening's performances.

We feel very privileged to have witnessed Mikaela's first Madrigal. She was absolutely stunning in her dress and sang beautifully and was magnificent in her flute solo. We are so proud of the beautiful young woman she has become. The entire evening was great! Enjoyed being with the entire Monday family that evening. Great photos and video.
In Christian Love,
Grandma & Grandpa

Mikaela is growing up! I didn't know she played the flute. Looks like she may have some musical theater in her future? Awesome costumes!
