This multi-media experience includes a set of hand-made cards that expand upon the music with quotes from Hildegard and physical materials featured in her mystical and medical writings. In the words of Hildegard, "the senses are to a person as precious stones sealed in a vase." Enrich your experience with a concert you can not only hear and see - but also touch, smell, and taste! 

The concert is 50 minutes long and will be live-streamed; the premiere will be followed by a discussion of Hildegard and medieval pharmacognosy (i.e. plant medicine) by Dr. Victoria Sweet, Dr. Alisha Rankin, and Dr. Minji Lee, and moderated by Johns Hopkins historian of medicine Dr. Mary Fissell.

Available on-demand for 2 weeks after the broadcast (through May 16).
