Student Choir Sings & Serves at Wilton Feast

The Wilton Singers ' first-ever winter feasts this past weekend served up a double main course. Guests heard no only the Singers, but the Wilton High School Madrigal Singers as well.

The Madrigals have always been a part of the Wilton Singers’ feasts, according to Jane MacEwen, one of the Singers’ founders. In fact, seven of the Wilton Singers used to be members of the Madrigals, MacEwen said.

In addition to performing four songs and accompanying the Wilton Singers, the Madrigals also served food to the  guests. This had them scrambling when it was time for them to perform and a few had to rush on stage instead of enter with the rest of the choir.

The Madrigals are a select group of advanced singers who perform unaccompanied works from all periods, according to the high school’s website. They are directed by Betsey de Groff, who has conducted festival choirs all over the country and in 1998 was voted Maine’s “Outstanding Choral Director of the Year.”

Your next chance to hear the Madrigals will be at the Wilton High School Orchestra and Choral Program’s Candlight Concert Wednesday, Dec. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the Clune Center for the Arts at Wilton High School.
