Performing the greatest hits of the 60's and 70's–of the 1500's that is–since 2007!

You have landed at the website/blog of the Madrigal Singers of Boston College, BC's student-run group dedicated to performing high-quality chamber choral works with roots in and around the Renaissance. Although we specialize in madrigals and motets, we have been known to perform some more contemporary settings now and then. Our group attracts members from many different musical backgrounds with varying levels of experience--however, all of our members share (at least) one common thread: we all have a passion for bringing the choral art to life and having lots of fun in the process.

Welcome!

The Madrigal Singers 7th Annual Christmas Concert: In the Moon of Wintertime!

We are pleased to announce our 7th annual Christmas Concert- In the Moon of Wintertime!  As you may have guessed, we will be performing “‘Twas in the Moon of Wintertime/Huron Carol,” as well as many other pieces, including a piece by Victoria and the world premiere of an arrangement of “What Child is This” by our very own Josh Seo, BC ’17!  He created a really beautiful and interesting take on the traditional Christmas carol, so this is a concert you definitely won’t want to miss!

Acappellafest!

On Friday, September 19th, Mads joined all of BC’s other a cappella groups and performed in Acappellafest- a benefit concert hosted by the BC Acoustics to raise money for The Morgan Center!  The Morgan Center is a nonprofit organization that gives preschool-aged children that are undergoing cancer treatment the opportunity to socialize and interact with each other since they are unable to attend regular school due to their suppressed immune systems.  It was a great concert for an even greater cause!

More information about The Morgan Center can be found on their website.

All the a cappella groups did wonderfully and it was such an inspiration to meet Morgan and her parents!  We’re looking forward to performing in Acappellafest for Morgan and other children with cancer for many years to come!

If you want to read more about Acappellafest, check out this article published by The Heights!  Thanks to everyone who came out to support BC’s a cappella groups and The Morgan Center!
