Monmouth Country Club will be the site for an evening of fine dining and fine music on Feb. 25, as the Monmouth College Chorale presents a fundraiser for its upcoming performance tour of Spain in May.
Tickets for “Dinner and Music with MCC at MCC” are $25 each, and payment may be made at the door. Advance dinner reservations are requested, and diners are asked to call the Monmouth Country Club at 309-734-7909 as early as possible. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. and the music will begin at 7:15.
“Each member of Chorale is responsible for raising the $1,890 needed to go on the trip,” explained Chorale director Tim Pahel, who said that $15 of the price goes toward the cost of the meal and the remaining $10 will be donated to the Chorale.
The menu will feature chicken colette, beef tips with wild rice, red potatoes in butter and chives, glazed baby carrots, salad, roll and dessert.
A highly selective mixed choral ensemble, the Chorale is scheduled to depart for Spain on May 21 for a week-and-a-half tour that will include performances at four major cathedrals. The group’s last overseas trip was a 2005 tour of Scotland.
