depending on events around civic center, traffic and parking can be really difficult, so give yourself plenty of time to find parking and bring some cash, because if there is only limited parking all garages will accept cash only!

It was nothing short of a fantastic performance by all and the prolonged standing ovations were well deserved! One of the best performances of Carmina burana I ever heard!!!

The opening Haydn symphony was charmingly done. Carmina Burana was done with great panache - one of the best performances I've ever heard. Lots of energy, freshness and skill.

More Information


Carl Orff’s famed cantata Carmina burana occupies a vastly different realm: its erotic energy and sheer visceral power have installed it among Western music’s most iconic works. Haydn’s Symphony No. 97, one of the composer’s beloved “London” Symphonies, illustrates his characteristic elegance and charm.
