Thank you so much for coming out to see us, and sing with us last weekend! You are the most sporting audience a choir can hope to have, and we loved both singing for you, and watching you sing with us.
And now, we dive right into rehearsals for our final concert of the season. We sing CARMINA BURANA, 7:30 pm, Saturday, May 21, 2016.
If it’s new to you, Carmina is an opera with lyrics from medieval Latin poetry, set to music by Carl Orff. I know, you stopped at Latin. But it’s us, VCS. So what you need to know is that it’s the coolest kind of opera.
Did we mention that the words (on very human themes of lust, greed, all the vices) were written by snarky clergy in satire of the Catholic Church? Or that they were rediscovered in the early 20th century by defrocked monks? Really, you can’t make this stuff up.
Here’s the other thing: We’ll sing Carmina with two pianos,
six five percussionists, and the awesome kids from the Mosby Woods Mustang Chorus. (Yes, the very same who sang with us a couple of years ago at the Lullabies concert, under the direction of the fabulous Camille Haberland.)
Have you marked your calendar yet? Please do!
Cura, ut valets!*
(*The interwebs tells me that’s Latin for “Take care that you be well.”)
FYI – we expect a big crowd, and we’ll have information about tickets ASAP. But remember, you get first dibs if you’re on our mailing list. It’s easy! Subscribe in the box below.
