Event description

Description

Newcastle University Choir will present Carl Orff’s exciting and often-quoted cantata Carmina Burana in collaboration with the University of Newcastle’s chamber choir, Echology, forming a choir of 140 singers, on Saturday 5 May at 7.00p.m. and Sunday May 6 at 2.00p.m. at Newcastle Conservatorium of Music.

The performance will feature soprano Susan Carson, counter-tenor Paul Tenorio and bass Alex Sefton and will be accompanied by two pianos and five percussionists.

Premiered in 1937, Orff drew his text from a 13th-century manuscript containing poems and plays written in Latin and medieval German. The texts present a varied view of medieval life, including religious verses, social satires, and bawdy drinking songs.
