Opening: Mystical Meditation Medievalists

The Mystical Meditation Medievalists will turn the Silverlake Lounge into a magical, meditative space on February 15th. This duo specializes in the music, instruments and historical practices of medieval music. They won Classical Revolution: L.A.'s Battle of the Bands in December, enrapturing the audience with the transcendental sounds of ancient times and the magnetism of singer, Katina Mitchell. Alexa Pilon will join Katina on the vielle, a bowed string instrument used by travelling musicians in the 13th to 15th centuries. Both doctoral students at USC, Alexa has performed with the renowned baroque orchestra, Tafelmusik, and Katina has performed at the Berkeley and Boston early music festivals. Katina recently presented a concert featuring the music of medieval nun and mystic, Hildegard von Bingen, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. The duo will perform music by Hildegard von Bingen, Machaut and Anonymous. Mystical
