Psst… Carmina Burana… Pass it on…

Performers: San Francisco Choral Society and CA Chamber Symphony
Place: Davies Symphony Hall
Time: August 20th, 8pm
Cost: Under $30 a ticket

Come get your ass happily kicked by modern choral music. Be there.

O Fortuna,                          O Fortune,
velut luna                          like the moon
statu variabilis,                   you are changeable,
semper crescis                      ever waxing
aut decrescis;                      and waning;
vita detestabilis                   hateful life
nunc obdurat                        first oppresses
et tunc curat                       and then soothes
ludo mentis aciem,                  as fancy takes it;
egestatem,                          poverty
potestatem                          and power
dissolvit ut glaciem.               it melts them like ice.

  1. You scared me — had this posted before I’d ordered OUR tickets. It’s ok, though — got them now — row B, center — ready to be blown away!
