It was exactly ten years ago that The Outer Cape Chorale first performed Carmina Burana – one of the most popular pieces of classical music ever written. The experience was so exciting that they’ve decided to treat their audiences to a reprise. The piece is a scenic cantata composed by German composer Carl Orff in 1936, and based on 24 poems from a medieval collection written in Latin and an early form of German. A wide range of topics is covered, as familiar in the 13th century as they are in the 21st century: the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of the return of Spring, and the pleasures and perils of drinking, gluttony, gambling and lust! The Chorale will be accompanied by John Thomas and Chuck Griffeth on keyboards, and Paul Gross, Jeff Myers, Mark Prall and Timur Rubinshteyn on percussion.
