Reilly Lewis and the Cathedral Choral Society join the Medieval vocal ensemble Eya for a multi-media concert event called Visionary Women, a tribute to Joan of Arc and Hildegard of Bingen, at Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, February 22 at 5pm. The concert features Richard Einhorn's oratorio, Voices of Light, presented alongside a screening of Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1928 silent film, The Passion of Joan of Arc.
