Carmina Burana Concert – begins at 7:30 pm

Passionate! Resounding! Spectacular! Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is based on medieval poems about love and lust. It’s the most popular and most performed choral work of the last century. This spectacle will feature the MIM Chorus (joined by guests from Sierra Master Chorale), the MIM Festival Orchestra, and fantastic soloists: Carrie Hennessey, soprano; Kevin Doherty, baritone; Daniel Ebbers, tenor.
