About the Choir
The Hildegard von Bingen Women’s Chorus, led by Choirmaster Tiziana Fumagalli, was founded in 1992.
The Choir’s mission is to study and to increase awareness of musical works dedicated to female figures and especially of compositions by female composers.
The Choir draws inspiration from Hildegard von Bingen, whose work is the subject of particular study and interest on the part of Choir members. Reflections on von Bingen’s life and work have inspired the Choir’s interpretative and musical approach since its inception and are no less essential in the theme-based programming and lecture-concerts that the Choir offers.
Through its performances, the Choir hopes to recreate the spiritual presence and grandeur of convent singing.
