ORFF Carmina burana
In the wonderfully indulgent Carmina burana, you’ll hear an irresistible, nonstop and thunderous celebration of life, love and the philosophy of carpe diem performed by your Kansas City Symphony and Chorus. One of the most popular classical works of all time, Carmina burana appears in countless movies, TV shows, commercials and sporting events. This musical extravaganza begins with a kaleidoscope of sound in pieces by two prominent American composers, Sarah Kirkland Snider and Augusta Read Thomas.
