Reformation Reboot highlights the 500th anniversary of the Diet of Worms with a new program of music from the sixteenth century. During the Diet of Worms, Martin Luther affirmed his revolutionary ideas including community involvement in religious services, direct worship, and use of the vernacular language (German rather than Latin). This was the beginning of non-clergy and church staff becoming involved in congregational singing, a forerunner to modern professional and amateur choirs. Our project explores music from this inclusive tradition including works by Ludwig Senfl, Heinrich Isaac, and Thomas Stoltzer. This program also involves community outreach events, held at Stone Belt, center for developmentally disabled adults in Bloomington, Indiana.
Reformation Reboot has two public performances:
- Friday, November 12, 7pm at Trinity Episcopal Church (Bloomington, IN) — $10 suggested donation.
- Saturday, November 13, 6:30pm at Christ Church Cathedral (Indianapolis, IN) — $10 suggested donation
This program is made possible in part with support from Bloomington Arts Commission.
Season support comes from the Indiana Arts Commission Arts Recovery Program, National Endowment for the Arts, Arts Midwest, and donors like you.
