Simply superb Symphony
Joined by a choir of nearly 100 voices drawn from all over the North Coast, the Lismore Symphony Orchestra (LSO) will present Carl Orffs Carmina Burana at Lismore City Hall this Sunday, May 28, at 2pm.
Carmina Burana is a series of 13th century anonymous poems set to music by a 20th century German composer. Despite being a modern work, the composer has kept an old feel to the music by keeping away from excessive use of chromaticism and modulation. (Yeah, good. Hate excessive use of chromaticism.)
The LSO will also present orchestral excerpts from Tchaikovskys Nutcracker, Waltz of the Flowers and pieces by Elgar, Brahms and Bizet.
Tickets are $15/10 (with a family ticket for $40) and are available from La Boutique in Ballina, Alstonville Bookworm and the Lismore Music Centre.
