From Book of Divine Works, Part I, Vision 4: Cosmos, Body, and Soul (1230)
by Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179)
Our lives are lived as a tree in the forest. We set roots, yet we grow. We extend our our arms as branches and brush against our fellow human beings. We bend together to survive the harsh winds; we protect one another. We feed. And are fed.
Life is made beautiful through generosity and kindness. It is the food that nourishes us to sustain others through acts of love and compassion. This program explores the human condition and how we muddle through with grace and hope. Early music composers certainly knew adversity and were only too eager to express their thoughts through music.
NOTE: This program will be part of an ONLINE experience. To allow for as many people as possible to hear this performance, ticket prices have been reduced to $10/individual and $15/household. There are no other discounts in order for us to make sure Helios is able to perform four programs this season. We appreciate your understanding.

“Nothing is sweeter than love, nothing higher, nothing stronger, nothing larger, nothing more joyful, nothing fuller, and nothing better in heaven or on earth.”
Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471)
