Carl Orff: Carmina Burana 

October 3, 2019 

October 4, 2019 

October 5, 2019 

Kennedy Center Concert Hall

“O Fortuna!” Carmina Burana’s towering first movement rolls in like thunder, announcing a celebration of spring, the humor of life in the tavern, and the joys and sorrows of love. Although the words were written by medieval monks, Orff’s outrageous cantata is an unstoppable force brimming with decadent debauchery. Under the baton of Maestro Gianandrea Noseda, the Orchestra is joined by two choruses for a symphonic experience sacred and profane.

March 13, 2020 

Lisner Auditorium

On the heels of its second Grammy Award, San Francisco’s venturesome Kronos Quartet travels not just beyond standard musical genres, but into outer space itself in the first-ever DC performance of Sun Rings, composer and longtime Kronos collaborator Terry Riley’s 2002 multimedia masterwork commissioned by NASA and others. Combining live performance by the quartet and chorus with pre-recorded “spacescapes” and visual design by Willie Williams, Sun Rings is an inspiring meditation on humanity and our place in the universe.

To Shiver the Sky, a musical exploration of mankind’s conquest of the sky for orchestra, chorus, and soloists, sets texts from pioneers of flight from Leonard da Vinci to Amelia Earhart.
