F.J. HAYDN Symphony No. 94 “Surprise”
ORFF Carmina burana
Two contrasts in music: Haydn’s elegant “Surprise” Symphony contrasts with the bombastic and rowdy Carmina burana by Carl Orff, a celebration of orchestral and choral power with the orchestra, KCS Chorus and soloists. Guest conductor Nicholas McGegan, a favorite of KCS audiences, returns to lead this program with charm and wit.
To order Youth tickets for ages 8 and above, please call the Symphony Box Office at (816) 471-0400.
