 Vajra Voices: Women's Voices Uplifted

Vajra Voices – known for their “heartfelt elegance and spiritual fervor” (San Francisco Chronicle) – present a program of medieval and renaissance music created by and for women. Highlights of this journey into women’s song include music and poetry created by the 12th century mystic and abbess, Hildegard von Bingen; and span into the intricate 16th century polyphony attributed (recently) to Leonore d’Este. Featured on the program are solo monody, 2-part sequences, and 3-part polyphonic conductus found in the Codex Las Huelgas de Burgos (circa 1300). It is thought that the music in Las Huelgas (Northern Spain) was for performance by the 100 women who resided there. Vajra Voices’ artists are Phoebe Jevtovic, Allison Lloyd, Amy S. Hunn, Celeste Winant, and music director Karen Clark. A reception will follow the performance.
