Webinar: The Music of Hildegard von Bingen
October 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
Eya’s director Allison Mondel leads this comprehensive webinar which explores the life and musical legacy of medieval visionary Hildegard von Bingen. Learn about Hildegard’s unique creative output and special genius, and discover more about her music in vivid detail.
Alongside biographical details, you will learn about the development of her musical and visionary life. We will discuss the nature of her music and poetry, its creation, themes, imagery and symbolism, and its unique place within the context of medieval music history. We will also discuss the musical sources, notation, and liturgical-musical forms of Hildegard’s songs in order to gain a broader understanding of her compositional process, and the significance of her musical contributions.
Webinar will feature live musical examples by the members of Eya, followed by a Q&A.
This will be an interactive and joyful educational and listening experience, featuring a wealth of information about Hildegard, an enthusiastic group of learners, and the dedicated women of Eya who cannot wait to share and connect with you.
Attendees will receive a private invitation to a Zoom meeting room.
