Description

Carl Orff’s wildly popular and instantly recognizable Carmina Burana is a masterful blending of ancient Latin texts with visceral rhythms and haunting harmonies, evoking images of ritualistic dance and ribald frolicking that will awaken and arouse your senses. This intoxicating work is a not-to-be missed musical experience that is sure to be a sellout.

About the Ticket Supplier: Master Chorale of Washington

***8/09 - Master Chorale has closed its doors***

Founded in 1967 by the late Paul Hill, the Master Chorale of Washington (formerly the Paul Hill Chorale) has performed over 200 concerts in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall, appearing in its own subscription concert series and in collaborative performances with the National Symphony Orchestra, Joffrey Ballet, Dance Theater of Harlem and many others.

The Master Chorale of Washington is currently the only symphonic-sized chorus in the greater Washington community that follows the model of the world's finest choruses; employing a complement of professional singers within its rigorously auditioned and extremely talented volunteer base.
