Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana”
E Pluribus, Una Vox: Out of Many, One Voice
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Concert Hall
Contrasting monumental masterworks and new compositions, E Pluribus, Una Vox (“Out of many, one voice”) examines the influences of the world’s abundant fortune, both on the human experience and the fractured spaces we create. Carl Orff’s timeless Carmina Burana returns to the Kennedy Center stage under the baton of Uniting Voices Chicago’s Josephine Lee. Inspired by over 200 poems and songs from the 11th through 13th centuries, the scenic cantata tells the story of humanity through all of its peaks and valleys. The Choral Arts Symphonic Chorus and Orchestra will welcome youth voices from Uniting Voices Chicago for the experience.
Scenic for different reasons, Ted Hearne’s Partition tells the story of New Haven, Connecticut. Despite the city’s meticulously planned infrastructure and local cornerstones, New Haven remains segregated by the very roads that make up the city. Join Choral Arts as we sing the story of these collective yet conflicting experiences chronicled centuries apart.
