In what has become an annual tradition, Byron Music Society presents Carmina Burana as its 2019 big sing.
Singers and instrumentalists from all around the region come together for an intense weekend of rehearsals, culminating in a fantastic performance of choir, children’s choir, and orchestra on Sunday afternoon.
Carmina Burana is a scenic collection of bawdy songs about the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of the return of Spring, and the pleasures and perils of drinking, gluttony, gambling, and lust!
Composed in 1935 and 1936 by Carl Orff, Carmina Burana is based on 24 poems from the medieval collection Carmina Burana.
