letter from the director
Our artistic aim is to offer musical experiences and engagement that bridge our human experience to the Divine, through a feminine lens. Rooted in the medieval era, we explore universal themes that cultivate a deeper understanding of ourselves and of others.
Our tenth anniversary programming and offerings reflect this mission, and the theme of our season centers on the divine union of women with the Beloved. We present two new, groundbreaking programs. In the fall, we present Beguiled, a confrontation of ancient thought and perception surrounding the sin of Eve in the Garden of Eden and the subsequent redemption of women in the Virgin Mary, as treated by medieval mystic Hildegard von Bingen. The spring features The Unicorn, inspired by the mysterious medieval tapestries known as “The Lady and the Unicorn,” and amplifies the voices of visionary women who seek–and find–sacred union unto themselves.
In addition to live-streamed performances featuring Eya, special guests, and new musical commissions, we will host conversations, interviews, educational opportunities, and community sings, and release the Symphonia Series, a free online sheet music resource of the music and poetry of Hildegard von Bingen.
We invite you, our cherished audience, on a heart- and mind-opening journey that has transformative power. Your part in this movement of healing is crucial. We have so many opportunities for you to join us, both in conversation and in song, as we live into our mission to awaken, heal, and transform the sacred voice of women. Our tenth anniversary season is not only entirely virtual, it is our most ambitious season of programming to date. Most importantly, we intend for this season to be celebratory.
We urge you to join your voice with ours to celebrate the power of our collective voice, and realize this healing together.
