    152nd Worcester Music Festival closing concert features The Worcester Chorus, Chris Shepard, Artistic Director, with guest soloists and the Worcester Childrens Chorus, Two Pianos, and assorted percussion.

    Sometimes called a "dramatic cantata", the Carmina Burana is based upon a group of 13th century poems that were discovered in the Benedictine monastery of Beuren in Bavaria. Written in medieval Latin and middle high German, yet this is one of the most recognizable of choral works because the "O Fortuna" section has been used in countless movies, television, and commercial productions over the years. The collection of music is full of humor and intensity, both ribald and romantic, celebrating wine, women, song, Spring, and the fickleness of fate! Prepare to be entertained!
