On the music
Join the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir on a journey of passion and desire as you experience Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, with its unmistakable opening: “O fortuna!” Under the direction of Jean-Sébastien Vallée, the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir is joined by the Toronto Children’s Chorus and members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra to present this monumental score filled with hypnotic rhythms and dramatic storytelling. This performance will also feature one of Brahms’ finest choral works, Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny), and a commissioned piece by TMChoir’s 23/24 composer-in-residence, Tracy Wong. This grand celebration of life, love, and renewal is bound to be an unforgettable evening at Roy Thomson Hall.
