Offering comfort in the familiar, this weekend Madrigalia puts on two performances of its annual holiday concert, "Ring Out, Wild Bells!" Program selections on the "bell" theme include "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," "Ding Dong! Merrily on High," and "Carol of the Bells." Joining Madrigalia for the Friday evening performance will be the Third Church Ringers bell choir. Madrigalia, now in its 36th season, is a chamber ensemble, performing works across the centuries and styles.
Madrigalia performs Friday, December 14, 7:30 p.m. at Third Presbyterian Church (4 Meigs St.) and Sunday, December 16, 4 p.m. at Downtown Presbyterian Church (121 N. Fitzhugh St.). $5-$15. 230-2894, Madrigalia.org.
