Please join the Arts Council of Big Sky for the 26th annual Madrigal Dinner on Monday, December 4, 2023, at 5 p.m. in the Missouri Ballroom at Big Sky Resort. Marking its 59th year, the Madrigal Dinner is a production of the Montana State University School of Music. To many it is considered the traditional opening of the holiday season and is one of the winter highlights for the Big Sky Community! 

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 Montanans serenade guests throughout the evening and are joined by Voces Luminis (ssaa) for the concert finale. The dinner closes with the audience joining the musicians in singing familiar carols.

Tickets include a rustic dinner and festive music from the Montana State Montanans, the MSU Brass Quintet, and the Voces Luminis (ssaa). Tickets are on sale now and by reservation only. Please click on the "Get Tickets" button below to purchase. 

You will have the opportunity to request seating near guests outside of your party through a questionnaire prompted AFTER you make your purchase. We will do our best to accommodate all requests! If you have any questions or need more information, please call 406-995-2742.
