[November 27, 2012]  SPRINGFIELD -- What could be better than launching the holiday season with beautiful music and scrumptious food? The Illinois Historic Preservation Agency is providing both at a madrigal dinner Saturday evening at the Vachel Lindsay Home Historic Site.

The Lincoln Land Community College Madrigal Singers will perform "A Christmas Madrigal -- Past and Present" at the Lindsay home, while Real Cuisine and chef Ashley Glatz will provide the meal.

The performance of choral music, directed by Sue Hamilton, includes both Renaissance and contemporary madrigals. It is co-sponsored by the Vachel Lindsay Association.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and dinner is served at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets were $50 by advance purchase at Tinsley Dry Goods on Sixth Street, near the Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices, or by sending a check to the Vachel Lindsay Association, P.O. Box 9356, Springfield, IL 62791-9356. The reservation deadline was last week. For more information, call the Vachel Lindsay Home at 217-524-0901.
