Liquid Music and Walker Art Center Present ModernMedieval: THE LIVING WORD
On Friday and Saturday, March 22-23, 2019, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music Series and Walker Art Center present ModernMedieval: The Living Word at 8pm in the Summit Center for Arts & Innovation, Saint Paul.
ModernMedieval, founded by Anonymous 4 member Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, brings together singer-experts in the fields of early and new music to create programs that deftly combine the sound of then and now.
In The Living Word, chants by 12th century composer, mystic and polymath Hildegard of Bingen are interwoven with newly commissioned pieces by visionary composer-producers Ben Frost, Angélica Negrón and Julianna Barwick. ModernMedieval (Horner-Kwiatek with Roomful of Teeth's Eliza Bagg and Abigail Lennox) will be joined by Barwick on "Adder" for four voices and electronics, and by Frost and Negrón for their world premieres.
