Behind the Veil: The Hidden Talents of the Medieval Women’s Choir
Like many musical organizations, our members have numerous talents and accomplishments that generally remain unknown to our audience at large. They are writers, artists, instrumentalists, singers and scholars, and they enrich our community in any number of ways beyond their appearances with the choir. Since the pandemic keeps us from meeting in person with you, and with each other, we thought this would be a good time to step out from behind the veil, and display some of the secret talents of our members. This exclusive online presentation features excerpts from literary works and performances of music from medieval to McCartney, hosted by Artistic Director Eric Mentzel.
Contributing artists from the choir include Mary Lynne Evans, Bill McJohn, Ellen Seibert, Candace Robb, Basha Osinski, Sophia Smith, Dinnen Cleary, Alice K. Boatwright, Wendy Joseph, Erika Chang, Mary Ann Hagan, Marian Seibert, Sally Mitchell, and Michael LaGaly, all supported by videographer Ailisa Newhall, sound engineer Kevin Wyatt-Stone, and produced by the MWC’s Artistic Director, Eric Mentzel.
