Under the artistic direction of Dustin Willetts; Cantabile Chamber Choir, Kulshan Chorus, and Sno-King Chorale perform Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. Based on twenty-four poems from the medieval collection, Carmina Burana. The 11th-13th century poems cover a variety of topics, as familiar then as they are now: the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of the return of Spring, and the pleasures and perils of drinking, gluttony, gambling, and lust. Together these poems and music describe activities along the great ‘wheel of life’ or ‘wheel of fortune.’ As the wheel spins, we may be uplifted in the world. But just as easily, the activities or wheel of life may crush us. The moral is that no one of us is greater than any other, no matter their status. We should treat each another as equals, each struggling for purpose and meaning in the great wheel that is life. We belong to each other.
