A Tempo: Von Bingen Musical Shines Spotlight on Pioneering Composer/Reformer

Hildegard von Bingen has been recognized as a pioneer not only for her contributions to Western music, but also for her writings on science and medicine, and her advocacy for some reforms within the Christian church -- accomplishments that were no small feat for a woman at the time. Some of those themes are played out in a new musical now in development called "Hildegard - An Unfinished Revolution" that will be staged as a reading Tuesday Sept. 10 at Princeton University'sLewis Center for the Arts. A Tempo this Saturday (9/7 at 7 pm) previews the reading with an interview with director and Princeton alumna Elizabeth Swanson and composer Davyd Reddyk.

Rachel Katz is the host of A Tempo which airs Saturdays at 7 pm.
