Description

Thirty years ago, Margriet Tindemans founded the Medieval Women’s Choir on the premise that medieval music is as accessible as it is inspiring. She believed that any choral singer could learn to sing and to love this extraordinary repertoire and, through it, gain an appreciation and understanding of the culture that created it. Three decades on, Margriet’s choir, and her vision, continue to thrive. To celebrate our 30th season, we will revisit some of medieval repertoire most closely associated with the choir, as well as new pieces written for us over the years by Seattle composers Karen Thomas and Peter Seibert; by long-time MWC collaborator Shira Kammen; and by Margriet Tindemans herself.
