Trobar: A Room of Her Own: Christine de Pizan and Her Musical Circle

Date:
June 15, 2019
Time:
11:30 am to 12:30 pm
Location:
Gordon Chapel

Inspired by Christine de Pizan, 15th-century writer and fearless champion of women in an intellectual world dominated by men. We perform music of the courts in which Christine circulated, including pieces by Guillaume de Machaut, Baude Cordier, and Johannes Tapissier, side by side with readings from her work The Book of the City of Ladies, thus constructing a dialogue about women and their status in 15th-century France. Allison Monroe, vielle, voice & harp; Elena Mullins, voice; Karin Weston, voice & harp; with Faith Whitacre, actress. $15 (discounts may apply)
