You’ve heard it everywhere, even if you don’t know it—on television, at the movies, and on the radio, covered by everyone from Ozzy Osbourne to Charlotte Church. Its visceral choruses, thundering percussion, and blazing brass pack a massive punch, but it’s also filled with moments of wry humor and rapt mystery that together make it one of music’s iconic works. Carmina burana, composer Orff’s dramatic cantata for soloists, chorus, and large orchestra, is one of the most invigorating, exhilarating musical experiences out there, especially when performed by the massed forces of the San Francisco Symphony and Chorus. Don’t miss it!
This performance benefits the Orchestra’s Pension Fund.
