PROGRAM

Ordo Virtutum by Hildegard von Bingen

A soul that must cross the threshold to walk among the blistering sins of the flesh—where are her knights? Who are those fierce warriors that appear like clouds to save her from despair? These are the visions of Hildegard von Bingen. Known as Saint Hildegard and Sibyl of the Rhine, she was a German Benedictine abbess and polymath, prolific writer, composer, philosopher, mystic, visionary, medical writer, and feminist during the High Middle Ages.

Tickets and More Information

The historic heart of the music department in the College of Arts and Sciences, Hill Hall reopened in 2016 after an 18-month, $15-million renovation. Work centered on improvements to Hill Hall’s 430-seat auditorium and rotunda. The performance space was renamed the James and Susan Moeser Auditorium in honor of the former chancellor and his wife, who are organists and teachers at UNC.
