University Symphony,Dvorak, Orff and much more! ($10 suggested)

For a grand culmination to the[masked] season, the University of Chicago Chorus and Motet Choir (James Kallembach, director) and the Hyde Park Neighborhood Choir of the Chicago Children’s Choir (Mollie Stone, director) join the University Symphony to present a perennial favorite: Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, a “scenic cantata” based on 24 poems from a Medieval manuscript. Set primarily in Latin verse with Middle High German and Old Provençal mixed in, the 12th-century texts celebrate a host of contemporary topics: the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of springtime, and the pleasures and perils of drinking, gluttony, gambling, and lust.

Acclaimed soloists Patrice Michaels, soprano, Ian McEuen, tenor, and Will Liverman, baritone, join the 250+ musicians on stage.

The program opens with a delightfully melodious orchestral pairing: Antonin Dvorak's exuberant Carnival Overture, Op. 92, and Josef Suk’s exquisite Scherzo Fantastique, Op. 25. Barbara Schubert conducts.
