Carmina Burana Performance by the Austin Symphony and Chorus Austin

May 30–31, 2015

Austin Symphony Orchestra presents Carmina Burana: Classical Series Finale with Chorus Austin at the Long Center. Between 1935 and 1936, German composer Carl Orff composed music, also called Carmina Burana, for 24 of the poems. The single song "O Fortuna" (the Roman goddess of luck and fate), from the movement "Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi", is often heard in many popular settings such as films. You don't want to miss over 150 musicians performing this colossal piece of music. Still want more? How about playing on some string instruments provided by our friends at Violin's Etc.? We also have a wonderful pre-concert talk given by Bob Buckalew at 7:10 pm. How about "tweeting" with our musicians and Maestro Bay? The Austin Symphony wants you to get the most out of your concert experience. When we ask, "What Brings You Here" we hope you say, "Everything!" Alumni from Yale SOM, Harvard, MIT, Stamford, and Princeton are invited to attend a performance on May 30 for a special discounted rate.There will be a private reception starting at 6:45pm.
