The two piano and percussion edition of the crowd favorite Carmina Burana opens our season with a bang. Featuring the percussion ensemble from San Jose State University, SCU faculty piano artists, and the possibility of even further collaborations, Carmina could pack the house for an electric start to our season. The two piano/percussion edition has all of the sonic impact of the full scoring for orchestra but allows you to actually hear the choir – a rare treat in this piece – and will provide an intimate yet powerful portrayal of this well-known masterwork. The chorale will again call on emerging young artists for our vocal soloists and give artists early in their career a chance to do major repertoire in a professional setting.
