Yale musical groups join in a performance of ‘Carmina Burana’
The Yale Symphony Orchestra will join forces with the Yale Glee Club, the Yale Camerata, and the United Girls’ Choir for a performance of Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana,” which has been a staple of the classical repertoire since its premiere in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1937.
The concert on Saturday, Feb. 11 will also feature soloists Sarah Yanovitch, soprano; Lucas van Lierop, tenor, and Bryan Murray, baritone.
One of the most popular works of the 20th-century canon, “Carmina Burana” has been performed in concert halls across the world, and is featured on numerous movie soundtracks. It is considered Orff’s masterpiece. Of the piece, the composer remarked to his publisher: “Everything I have written to date, and which you have, unfortunately, printed, can be destroyed. With ‘Carmina Burana,’ my collected works begin.”
The concert begins at 8 p.m. in Woolsey Hall, corner of Grove and Prospect streets. Tickets can be ordered online or by calling the Yale Symphony Orchestra office at 203-432-4140. Tickets may also be purchased at the door on the evening of the concert.
