The fall season is under way for the Davis High School Madrigals, with fundraising events and concerts on the calendar during the weeks ahead. Their 2012-13 season includes concerts in Davis, Sacramento and Woodland leading up to a journey to Russia and Italy, where the Madrigals have been invited to sing at choral festivals, in June.

Proceeds from the upcoming fundraisers will go to support the Madrigals on that trip.

Founded in 1966, the Madrigals are an auditioned 36-member mixed chamber choir performing in distinctive, Renaissance-inspired costumes. The choir performs a cappella and accompanied music dating from the Renaissance period to present times.

Wine Pour fundraiser: Join wine enthusiasts and fans of the award-winning Madrigals for Wine Pour 2012, an annual wine-tasting fundraiser from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at Osteria Fasulo restaurant, 2657 Portage Bay Ave. East in Village Homes.

Ticket holders will taste fine wines from more than a dozen California wineries, participate in a wine raffle and hear the Madrigals perform at 3:30 p.m.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. To purchase tickets, email Arne Hyson at maddadarne@comcast.net or visit Watermelon Music, 207 E St. in downtown Davis.

Monster Bash: Adults are invited to participate in of one of the most frightfully fun events of the season as the annual Monster Bash Halloween costume party returns for a fourth year. The fang-tastic event runs from 7 p.m. to midnight Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. downtown.

Guests will dance to the live music of Custom Neon, a Davis-based band performing classic rock and rock ‘n’ roll favorites. This adult-only evening (for ages 21 and older) includes a cash bar, a costume contest and prizes. Costumes are encouraged, but not required.

Tickets are $20 in advance, or $25 at the door. To purchase tickets, contact S. Kinkle at 530-756-5002 or sckinkle@sbcglobal.net, or visit Watermelon Music, 207 E St. downtown.

Choral workshop: The Madrigals invite elementary school children from throughout Yolo County to join them for a morning of holiday caroling Monday, Nov. 12. This workshop for kindergarten through sixth-grade students is an outreach program designed to give younger children the opportunity to work with high school singers.

“As we prepare for the Madrigal Dinner and upcoming holiday season, we would like to teach the youngsters in our community some of the traditional carols that we have learned and sing annually,” says director Karen Gardias.

Families can pre-register their students online in the events section of the DHS Madrigals website, www.davismadrigals.com. Look for registration forms later this month in elementary school offices. For more information, contact Elizabeth Grassi  at 2013DavisMadrigalsPublicity@gmail.com.

* The Madrigals will sing at the Davis Tree Lighting event on Thursday, Nov. 29, at 6:30 p.m. in E Street Plaza in downtown Davis.

* The 44th annual Madrigal Dinners will begin at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, and 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at University Covenant Church, 315 Mace Blvd.
