West Michigan Symphony presents Carmina Burana: Sacred and Profane at the Frauenthal Theater in Muskegon on Friday, November 21st, 2014 at 7:30PM
The WMS presents a concert of heavenly and earthly delights. The theme of Richard Wagner's opera Tannhäuser is the dichotomy between purely spiritual love and worldly desire. This overture was performed at the Symphony's first concert 75 years ago. Carmina Burana, Carl Orff's brilliant setting of profane Latin texts written by Medieval monks, is one of the most iconic and recognizable works of the 20th century.
