No Ordinary Carmina Burana

Received a great flyer touting this "no ordinary" performance of Carmina Burana by the San Francisco Choral Society at Davies Hall. It's replete with "dancing MAIDENS, monks, PAGAN dress, [and] theatrical LIGHTING," though I'm not sure what is meant by "a swan well-done on WRY." The event sounds delightful nonetheless.

There's an even more amusing poster for some Choral Cluster Congress in August who are performing the Berlioz Requiem along with a bunch of other wild pieces. Check it out the next time you go by Davies Hall.

Ah yes, I have indeed noted the poster with Napoleon on it! It's great. It's going to be a noisy month in Davies Hall!
