Welcome! We are the Amherst College Madrigals, more
commonly known as The Mads (and for good reason!). If you see people
around campus who randomly burst into bawdy song, they're probably we. :)
We are a
part of the Amherst College Choral Society, which includes the Concert Choir, Glee Club, and
Women's Chorus. It's autumn of 2001, the trees are
starting to change colours, there's music in the air, and Madrigals are
gearing up to go again! This year's madness is being corraled by the team
of Alison Kauffman and Whitney Cox, both juniors and each a
little crazier than the other.
We'd love to come sing for you! We are
working on several concert exchanges at the moment; if you'd like to
Madrigals for an engagement, please e-mail our geek-in-residence, Whitney Cox (who is, if you
were paying attention last paragraph, also the director, but deigns
to update the web page too ... when she remembers).
This semester's membership has been a bit in flux
and still hasn't settled down, but we've got a few loyalists on board.
Singing with the sopranos is Mollie Stone, class of 2001 and
stressed-out choral assistant who juggles all the responsibilities
Mallorie gives her and still makes time to lend us her loverly voice. From
the freshman class of 2005, Sarah Davis alto extrordinaire, and
Jon Wemette, a big bad bass, have joined the madness; joining Jon
down in the depths will be junior Michael Turken, an all-around
neat guy. Hooray for the new members!
