Carl Orff’s singular and powerful work, bringing to life texts from the 11th and 12th centuries, comes to the stage with soloists Ashley Fabian, Joseph Tancredi, and Octavio Moreno plus the full might of the TSO Chorus. Gabriela Ortiz’s Kauyumari, which plays tribute to the blue deer, a spiritual guide of the Huichol people of Mexico, is followed by Robert Muczynski’s Symphonic Memoir, premiered by the TSO in 1979 and the latest in the TSO’s exploration of this Tucson-based composer.

Music Notes

  • Kauyumari was commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic as a piece to reflect on the return to stage post-pandemic.

  • Originally from Hermosillo, Mexico, baritone Octavio Moreno is an alum of the University of Arizona.

  • The texts of Carmina Burana are mostly bawdy, irreverent, and satirical, and the music is a staple of popular culture, turning up in movies such as Excalibur, TV shows Glee and The X Factor, and a Domino’s commercial from Super Bowl XLIX!
