Internationally renowned conductor Tito Muñoz makes his Carnegie Hall debut with Carmina Burana. In his return to the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the native New Yorker leads the Westminster Symphonic Choir and the Young People’s Chorus of New York City in a thrilling performance of Carl Orff’s most famous work. Carmina Burana takes the raucous, primal spirit of its medieval poetry text source and turns it into a bombastic, downright theatrical experience. All-star trio of soloists Ying Fang, Nicholas Phan, and Norman Garrett sing the roles of young lovers, a disgraced abbot, and even a sorrowful swan roasting on a spit. Children’s voices embody playful cupids, while robust choruses praise goddesses and lament the fickle nature of fate. With such a mighty crowd of musical forces behind it, this larger-than-life performance is not to be missed.
