The Chorale’s 61st season begins with SONG –
“how sweet the music…”. Shakespeare’s words and the beautiful musical setting by Ralph Vaughan Williams.
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.
7:00 PM – Paul Hyde will share his thoughts on this evening of diverse musical styles and expressions of diverse emotions – both serious and not-so-serious
