The 39th season of Grand Valley State University’s Arts at Noon concert series continues Wednesday, Feb. 22, when the Hildegard Singers come to the Allendale campus.
Based in Grand Rapids, the Hildegard Singers are three professional vocalists who were convened in 2011 to celebrate the beautiful and timeless music of Hildegard of Bingen, a German Benedictine abbess, writer, composer, philosopher, and Christian mystic. The ensemble, comprised of Diane Penning, Lisa Walhout and Barbara McCargar, also perform other medieval vocal music treasures, including Gregorian chant, Spanish and French pilgrimage music, and French, German and English motets and carols.
All Arts at Noon concerts during the 39th season of the popular series will take place in the Cook-DeWitt Center on the Allendale Campus, begin at noon, and last approximately one hour. Every concert is free and open to the public.
