The Madrigal Singers have a long and proud tradition of performing Renaissance secular literature in all languages. They also perform sacred literature and contemporary works designed for small ensemble. This group of 18 to 20 tours widely and has been heard on such prestigious stages as Carnegie Recital Hall in New York City and Tyrone Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis. Founded and directed by Dr. Robert L. Larsen, the ensemble has earned plaudits from critics throughout the United States and Europe. They tour annually and perform regularly in Europe during May term, including trips to Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Great Britain, Scandinavia, Russia, Spain, Scotland and England. Their Madrigal Dinners, among the first in the country, are well known throughout the Midwest for their ambiance and sumptuous musical fare. Emphasis is placed on students’ individual vocal skills and the ability to utilize those skills in a small ensemble. The Madrigal Singers is open to all Simpson students by audition.
