Sacred Music Program Concert - Carmina Burana


Location: DeBartolo Performing Arts Center - Leighton Concert Hall

Carmina Burana 768x1024 Small

Sacred Music Notre Dame, Concordia Vocal Ensemble, the Notre Dame Children's Choir, the Vesper Chorale, and the Sacred Music Festival Orchestra combine forces to perform one of the 20th century's most famous works of choral-orchestral music.

Carl Orff's 1930s masterwork, Carmina Burana, is an immediately recognizable cantata embedded in the cultural consciousness from frequent concert performances to its use in film, TV, and commercials. Drawn from a 13th-century manuscript penned in Latin by a team of monks, the work's ancient stories are playful scrutinies of church hierarchy, the natural world, love, life, partying, and celebration. Orff's epic ode to fate and passion is a grand and ambitious production fitting its position as the Presenting Series season closer.
