National Philharmonic: Carmina Burana
The National Philharmonic will perform Carmina Burana on June 8 at 8 p.m. at the Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda. Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana blends secular medieval texts with melodies and rhythms to create an unforgettable concert. Witold Lutoslawski, Poland’s most celebrated composer of the last century, traced his musical roots to Debussy and Stravinsky. These influences are heard in his evocative 1963 work, Three Poems by Henri Michaux, featuring the National Philharmonic Chorale in a stirring Washington-area premiere.
Tickets are $37 – $84 and may be purchased online at Strathmore website or by calling 301.581.5100.
