Los Robles Master Chorale
Will Sing Carmina Burana
Carl Orff's bravura choral masterwork, Carmina Burana, will be performed by Los Robles Master Chorale at a special end-of-season concert on Sunday, June 9 at St. Julie Billiart Catholic Church in Newbury Park. The classic work, conducted by Artistic Director Lesley Leighton, will pair the chorale with special guest artists, including dual pianists, percussionists, and vocal soloists.
Pianists Lisa Edwards and Mary Kay Altizer and percussionists Sidney Hopson and Lauren Kosty will provide the accompaniment for this spirited classic. Guest soloists will be soprano Deborah Mayhan, tenor Timothy Gonzales, and baritone Abdiel Gonzalez.
One of the most beloved works in the choral repertoire,
Carmina Burana sets a collection of secular poems written
by medieval monks. Despite their religious origins, the songs
celebrate such earthly pleasures as drinking, gambling, dancing,
and lovemaking. The stirring music is widely familiar, having been
used in countless films and television programs.
