Event Description

The Grammy Award-winning SF Symphony Chorus takes on Carl Orff’s exhilarating showpiece, Carmina burana. Arguably the most iconic choral work of the twentieth century, its unforgettable opening, “O Fortuna,” has become a pop culture phenomenon. Based on medieval German poetry, Carmina burana has it all: rhythmic and brooding choruses, lusty drinking songs, ballads cursing fickle lovers, and gleaming paeans to love.

The San Francisco Symphony does not appear in this performance.
