Why See Kansas City Symphony - Carmina Burana?
Raise the roof!
Easily the most recognizable and crowd-pleasing piece in all the classical repertoire, Carl Orff's powerhouse masterpiece, with its famed O Fortuna! chorus, is at its most essential and vivid when performed in the concert hall. A challenge more than befitting of the Kansas City Symphony!
An adaptation of a group of 13th Century poems, it is dramatic, powerful and indulgent, and has permeated popular culture, having been featured in everything from advertisements to movies, rock music to sports games.
In contrast, the program will begin with the sweet tones of graceful Haydn's Symphony No. 94 "Surprise".
Opening night: 28 March 2019
