    PRIMAL MUSIC TO SHAKE YOUR SOUL   
    Be moved by some of the most powerful, and most beautiful, music written:  Carl Orff’s 1936 secular cantata Carmina Burana for orchestra, chorus and vocal soloists... introduced by Tomaso Albinoni’s Adagio for strings and organ. Carmina Burana is the name of a collection of 254 poems and dramatic texts, mostly from the 11th and 12th centuries, that were discovered in a German monastery in the early 1800s.  Orff selected 24 of them for this hugely popular composition that captures the spirit of medieval times, with infectious rhythms and simple harmonies. 
    Three exceptional Chicago soloists join us for this performance:  soprano Elizabeth Norman, countertenor Carl Alexander, and baritone Warren Moulton.  Hear the opening of Carmina Burana.
    Special note:  this 80-minute concert will start at 4:30 pm and be performed without intermission.
