Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College Madrigals
The Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College Madrigals is an auditioned women’s chamber ensemble interested in performing diverse, challenging, and often a cappella choral repertoire. Comprised of music and non-music majors, the Madrigals is an ensemble rich in history, celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2018. In addition to numerous regional and national tours, the Madrigals have also performed in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Vatican, Canada, Germany, Austria, Italy, France, and now, Ireland. In addition, the Madrigals have performed several world premieres of new choral works, including several works by Saint Mary-of-the-Woods faculty member John McIntyre, and ‘La Providence’ by internationally-celebrated composer Sydney Guillaume.
For their 2018 tour of Ireland, the Madrigals are also joined by singers from the Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College Chorale and Woods Vocal Ensemble.
They will be performing in the Saint Patrick’s Cathedral on Wednesday 16th May at 13.00.
