Twelfth Night

Madregalia!! presents "Twelfth Night", a concert of Christmas music from the Renaissance Saturday, January 6th, at 7:30 p.m. at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 800 Cass St. in Monterey. This concert in Madregalia's 15th year explores music for Christmas from England, France, Germany, and Italy from the 15th, 16th, and early 17th centuries, with stately motets, lively carols, and introspective reflections on the birth of Christ. Suggested donation $10 - students free.
