Mussorgsky……….Pictures at an Exhibition
Orff…………………..Carmina Burana

We christen this season’s magnificent Davidson Classical Series with a matched pair of masterworks. Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, in its virtuoso orchestration by Maurice Ravel, opens the program; then we’ll hear Carmina Burana, Carl Orff’s gripping rendition of poetry by the savvy, mischievous goliards – “monks gone wild,” if you will. Experience the mystique, dark humor, and rapturous bliss of this panoramic window on medieval life and lore in an unforgettable performance featuring some of Alabama’s finest young classical singers and the Huntsville Community Chorus.
