Vocalist, Karen Clark, will speak of her own experiences of Hildegard as a musician. After the talk at 6:15 there will be a vespers service for Candlemas using the music of Hildegard. We are pleased to welcome Vajra Voices, an all female group specializing in medieval music. It is a rare opportunity to hear a professional group perform this ethereal music in its appropriate context. It is free but you should rsvp for the reception. Don’t miss out on a special treat!
