The Center for Old Music joyously invites you to an early-autumnal delight of Hildegard von Bingen chant performed by visiting guest artist, soprano Margaret Waddell.
Ms. Waddell brings both a mystical and scholarly approach to Hildegard's music, giving voice to a woman who lived 900 years ago, yet whose music expresses deep connections that reach to us today. Facets of Hildegard's life as a mystic, composer, philosopher, healer, scientist, and Benedictine nun and abbess will be shared during and after the concert.
Set in the acoustical space of The Episcopal Church of St. Michael the Archangel, timed close to Hildegard's Feast Day, this musical offering has the potential for a truly moving experience.
We hope you can join us!
