Wednesday, August 27 - Symphony Space - 7:30 PM
Orff: Carmina Burana
Julian Wachner, Conductor
The Washington Chorus
The Trinity Choir
Rollicking fun will be had during the Carmina Burana as we sing these 23 songs of defrocked—and frequently inebriated—monks. The rhythmic music is catchy and the vocal lines so expressive and dramatic they beg for your attention. A favorite of singers and audiences.
Conductor and composer Julian Wachner is music director of the Washington Chorus. Since 2010 he has also been Director of Music and the Arts for Trinity Wall Street where he leads the acclaimed Trinity Choir which received a Grammy nomination for its recent recording of Handel's Israel in Egypt. He is regularly in demand as a guest conductor both in New York and with orchestras and opera companies in the U.S. and Canada.
