Carmina Burana at U of H last Friday

Never got around to posting that we went to the U of H production of Carmina Burana at U of H.
 
It was awesome!!  Nicco got the tickets through the Honors College and the seats were great. I thought the production was very professional. I can’t lie, I was pretty skeptical that a university group could pull off a production of that scale.  Boy, was I off base.. the principals were all incredibly good, the choruses were plenty loud and on key, the musicians were spot on, and the conductor was one of the most animated folks I have ever seen.  I looked for the Chronicle review of the performance, but have not found it to date… will link if I ever do.  If you have never listened to this – you really should!!
 
 
      
A more traditional rendition of O Fortuna…                                                                            As background for the 300 trailer…. interesting!
