Eya: Ensemble for Medieval Music
Personal Summary / Bio
Eya, based in Washington, DC, specializes in the interpretation of medieval music for women’s voices. Directed by Allison Mondel, Eya presents concert programs that interweave diverse repertories of the 12th through 15th centuries, from Hildegard von Bingen to Notre Dame to the flyleaves of early English manuscripts and beyond. Through this lens, these programs seek to tell a story that forges new points of connection between contemporary audiences and ancient repertoire.
Eya (prounounced “eh-yah”) is a Latin exclamation of joy.
