The highlight of this musical weekend just happens to put together the biggest assemblage of vocal and instrumental forces we've seen assembled in some time — the combined voices of the Hartford Chorale, Connecticut Children's Chorus, soprano Amanda Hall, tenor Joshua Kohl, baritone David Pershall, and Carolyn Kuan (pictured) leading the entire Hartford Symphony Orchestra — for an epic performance of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. If you go, you'll also hear HSO Concertmaster Leonid Sigal performing Shostakovich's First Violin Concerto, a work that the composer likened to a symphony for solo violin and orchestra.
