Celebrating 40 Years

It was August 2, 1975, and 14 singers sat down in a living room to sing madrigals. Forty years, countless concerts, and over 850 pieces of music later, Madrigalia is a cornerstone of Rochester choral music. If you've sung with the group, attended a concert, or listened to our recording, we hope these images will bring back fond memories of our 40 years of music-making. If you're becoming acquainted with us for the first time, we hope you'll want to hear what all the fuss has been about, either in person at one of our concerts or listening to the CDs. 

We hope you enjoy some of these images from our historical archives!
