The songs of the 13th century Benediktbeuern monks (“Carmina Burana”), explore in the exciting music by Carl Orff (1895-1982) love songs, drinking songs, complaints about fortune (luck), and parodies of more sacred texts.
The well-known opening chords (often heard at fall football games!) set the stage for a rousing evening of beautiful, evocative, at times intense, sometimes humorous, and always smile-producing music.
