Escape the cold this December, and simultaneously enjoy hot food and joyous music provided by the Oregon High School music department! Oregon High School Madrigals invite you to attend their annual Madrigal Dinners. Come to one or both performances scheduled for Friday, December 6th and Saturday, December 7th.
