Holst: Choral Hymns from the Rig Veda and other Celestial Interpretations

October 25, 2015

Hypatia (c. 370-415c.e.) was a Greek mathematician, philosopher, astronomer, teacher, and head of the Neoplatonic school of Philosophy. At a time when women were considered little more than property, Hypatia flourished, freely sharing her teachings to many who travelled great distances to hear her, and promoting independent thought and access to education for all.

It’s my great delight to welcome you tonight to hear this fine ensemble of women who have come to discover together new levels of our musical potential. We are honoured to share this momentous night with you, and hope you enjoy the inaugural concert of Hypatia’s Voice Women’s Choir.
