Monmouth Civic Chorus - Carmina Burana: A Scenic Cantata

The Monmouth Civic Chorus is thrilled to announce a new, vibrant partnership with the Roxey Ballet for an upcoming presentation of Carl Orff's lauded and beloved Carmina Burana. Carmina Burana is undoubtedly one of the most frequently performed choral works of the 21st century, and the ever-popular "O Fortuna" movement has become a staple in today's culture, often used to signal intense dramatic situations in film, TV shows and even advertisements. The unique partnership between the Chorus and the Roxey Ballet, however, brings Orff's original vision to life. Performed with original choreography by dance company founder Mark Roxey, Orff's towering music comes alive with visual imagery. Soloists, two pianos and percussion will round out the performance.
