2021 Season


Madrigal 2021

While things still remain uncertain on mitigations and in an effort to keep our performers and audience members safe, we are sadly not returning to Coyote Creek this December. Instead, we’ll take a performance-only version of our Madrigal on tour around the Peoria area! We’ll miss the delicious and filling food, but are excited to bring our holiday music and performances back on December 17-19.

Auditions for the adult choir (age 16 and up) will be held on Sunday, October 3rd at 2pm at Monroe Grade School (5137 W. Cisna Rd, Bartonville, 61607). (**PLEASE ENTER THROUGH BACK OF BUILDING – SEE PHOTO POSTED BELOW**)

Participants do not need to prepare anything in advance – all materials will be provided on site by music director Jeff Driscoll. Auditioners will learn a song and sing in various combinations so that the group can be selected based on balance and blend. Rehearsals are typically held on Sunday evenings and alternate weekly between 1 and 2 weeknights based on performer availability.

*ALL* of our performance groups will follow all safety precautions and mandates provided by the state of Illinois including being fully masked for rehearsals and performances based on the current mitigation steps.

Additionally, the adult choir, actors, and upper level children’s choir will REQUIRE vaccination in order to participate for the safety of all performers involved.

Those who need to schedule an alternate audition time should contact Arc Light to schedule prior to October 3.
Additionally, the adult singers will perform at the Illinois Music Education Conference in Peoria in January!

Sign-ups for the Children’s Choir will be posted in early October. Watch our website and Facebook page for more information.

We are currently taking suggestions of possible venues to book for these 3 formal performances (we’d love to feature different areas throughout the community).

We are also eagerly looking for informal caroling performance opportunities for our adult singers and children’s choirs. We had a blast in 2019 starting to go out into the community and perform at different holiday events and hope to continue this community outreach!
