Hildegard to be canonized
An image of the Holy Spirit-inspired Hildegard and her scribe from the Rupertsberg Codex des Liber Scivias, c. 1180

December, 2011 — The Vatican announced that Pope Benedict XIV plans to canonize the 12th-century composer, mystic, author, physician and abbess Hildegard von Bingen and then proclaim her a Doctor of the Church in October 2012. Given that she is our company's inspiration, we couldn't be more proud of our namesake!

October 28, 2014 6:30 p.m. She is Music: A thousand years of vocal music by women composers
James Madison University, Memorial Hall, Harrisonburg, VA
Free and open to the public. Women have been writing music for the voice for over 1000 years in Western culture! This concert, presented in the style of a 19th Century Salon, will feature some of the most beautiful vocal music ever written – and all of it by women. You’ll hear the haunting songs of the women troubadours, the odes of the nightingale Divas, and the complex melody of Genius - over a dozen extraordinary women who also maintained successful careers as singers, composers, poets, pianists, and mystics. Each of these women was an artistic leader, whose works embodied the musical, cultural, and poetic influences of her time. They were often the catalysts behind the careers of other artists whose names would later eclipse theirs in the history books. The program will present both songs and accompanying commentary about the peculiar circumstances that enabled each of these women to practice her craft. These enchanting works will be narrated, sung, and accompanied by Kay Krekow, soprano, of The American Center for Puccini Studies.
