Early Auditions + Interviews for HILDEGARD
4:30 – 8:30 PM
Tilghman Studio, Lewis Arts complex
Hildegard spans the latter 40 years of the life of Hildegard of Bingen. This 12th-century abbess and someday-saint was a composer, philosopher, visionary, and pre-Reformation reformer. Our musical tells her story through her own music, remixed and reworked into modern pop arrangements. Act I explores the Christian concept of suffering as the three parts of the Holy Trinity narrate (and intercede in) Hildegard’s journey towards composing the world’s first recorded musical drama. Act II explores faith and justice as Hildegard attempts to reform the Roman Catholic Church from within.
Students who are cast in or who are assisting the creative team on this project will be given early on-campus housing and PAW points for food for the duration of the workshop from September 1-10, 2019.
AUDITION + INTERVIEW DETAILS:
Students interested to sing in the project should bring in 16 bars of music from their own songbook as well as 16 bars from Hildegard. We may ask students to sight read a piece of music in the room.
Students interested in assisting on this project should also sign up for and attend an audition slot in order to have a conversation/interview with the creative team. We will take up to two non-performing students as general assistants to the creative team on the project; at least one of these students should have real musical knowledge.
