The women’s vocal ensemble Vajra Voices sings medieval to modern music in a clear, sweet,
and strong singing style inspired by Hildegard von Bingen. Praised by the San Francisco Chronicle
for performances of “heartfelt elegance,” Vajra Voices debuted at the prestigious early music
gathering, the Berkeley Festival and Exhibition of Early Music, in 2010. The ensemble’s recording
O Eterne Deus: Music of Hildegard von Bingen was released on the Music & Arts label this year.
Vajra Voices has collaborated on performances with many artists in the Bay Area, most notably
choreographers Janice Garrett and Charles Moulton, and Oakland Ballet Company.
