DM Symphony - MW5: CARMINA BURANA
Spellbinding, hypnotic and heart-pounding, Carmina Burana simply must be experienced live. Hear this choral masterwork like never before as the Des Moines Symphony is joined onstage by 200 voices for a sensational, spectacular performance long to be remembered. Beethoven’s ebullient Eighth Symphony ticks along merrily to open the concert, while Wagner’s musical love letter, the tender and intimate Siegfried Idyll, contrasts the more provocative Carmina with its gentle, lilting portrayal of love.
“The dollar ticket price [for the Applause Series shows] is unbelievable. Without it, we would't be able to come. The people who support this program need to be applauded because it gives kids great opportunities.”
