Madrigalians is a select choral performance ensemble chosen from within the College Chorus. The group is comprised primarily of music majors seeking a high level of musical excellence through the diligent preparation of the best in classic and contemporary repertoire. Each member is selected by audition for his/her vocal skills and superior "sight-reading" ability as the Madrigalians' presentations demand an exceptional diversity of musical styles. The Madrigalians' basic repertoire focuses on masterworks of vocal chamber music ranging from the early Renaissance to the 21st Century. The group performs at a variety of venues, including a recent first-time appearance at Carnegie Hall that garnered a standing ovation. To be in the group, students enroll in MUN 1340, a 1-credit hour class that students can take up to six times.
