Chorale to perform at Monmouth Country Club

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.
