Maestro Charles Jones Evans will lead the Long Bay Symphony (LBS) in a performance of one of the most familiar and powerful vocal/orchestral masterpieces of all time. The concert takes place on Sunday, September 24, 2017, at 4 pm at the Myrtle Beach High School Music and Arts Center.
German composer and educator Carl Orff created a compelling musical setting of verses from the Carmina Burana, a collection of bawdy, irreverent Medieval-era texts discovered in a Bavarian monastery in 1803.
In addition, the opening concert of the LBS’s “Year of the Symphony” features Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s sparkling Symphony No. 31 (“Paris”), written for the composer’s symphonic debut with the French audiences.
Tickets range from $25 to $50. Student tickets (21 & under with student ID) are $10. For tickets call the box office 843-448-8379, purchase online at www.LongBaySymphony.com or visit us at 1107 48th Avenue N., Suite 310-E, Myrtle Beach.
