An epic performance of Carmina Burana at the Bushnell in Hartford

Arts and CultureConcertsMusicEntertainmentCultureHartford Symphony OrchestraCarl Orff

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.
