Welcome the Stranger: The Promise of Saint Benedict and Saint Scholastica

March 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $38

The year is 1618 and a mythical gathering of Milanese Benedictines is about to take place. Virtuosic compositions by local nuns are intermingled with medieval plainchant and Renaissance motets of the Cassinese monks of Saint Simpliciano. Music is shared and communities are welcomed. Over five centuries of music exploring St. Benedict’s Rule of unconditional hospitality is featured in this original program, researched and created by Artistic Director Jordan Sramek. In celebration of Women’s History Month, we proudly highlight music by Caterina Assandra  (1590-1618) and Chiara Margarita Cozzolani (1602-1678), as well as a new work honoring St. Scholastica by Minnesota composer Abbie Betinis.

Pre-concert discussions will be given by Jordan Sramek and Dr. Robert L. Kendrick of the University of Chicago. These discussions will begin 65 minutes before each performance.
