Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Symphony No. 35, “Haffner”
George Walker – Lilacs for voice and orchestra
Carl Orff – Carmina Burana

A feast for the ears and eyes, Carmina Burana is guaranteed to wow you with musicians, vocal soloists, choruses, dancers, staging, and costumes. Starting and ending with the riveting hymn to the capricious Goddess Fortuna and her relentlessly turning wheel, bold tunes and primal rhythms celebrate nature, the tavern, and the pleasures of love. It’s earthy, rowdy, and risqué, but sometimes breathtakingly beautiful. Plus, Mozart’s celebratory symphony and African-American composer George Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Lilacs (set to Walt Whitman’s haunting text on the death of Abraham Lincoln).

The lyrics of “America, the Beautiful” stirred Wang Jie’s patriotism in her hopeful riff on the song.
