2003's repertoire saw the Madrigals performing a diverse variety of non-standard pieces from Sweet Honey in the Rock to Salsa. Below is an excerpt from 2002's Chamber Music on the Hill Latin-America Concert describing the pieces learned and skillfully performed by the Madrigals in only a few weeks. Each piece has its own specific history and complex musical concept:

"Congori Shango comes from Costa Rica and the Santeria religion, which comes from the enslaved Yoruba of West Africa. Banned from practicing their faith, the Yoruba people created saint-like deities representing elements found on earth. Shango represents the fire and thunder god, a warrior, but is also the god of music and drums. In this piece you will hear the dance: clave rhythm and imitative instruments to make the audience feel the pulse of life itself. Salseo, a Venezuelan piece featuring Caribbean salsa, has the same qualities. El Manguito, a traditional piece from Venezuela, also shares these musical traits. Continuing with the force of life theme, Natalia, Xicoci conetzintle, and Don Dolon Dolon are lullabies. From Venezuela, Mexico and Argentina, respectively, a variety is hereby presented under one cultural theme. Incidentally, Xichochi is written musically in the style of colonial Spain, but the language used is the Aztec's Nahuatl."
