Dearborn Symphony Orchestra
featuring Vanguard Grand Chorus

A veritable feast for the senses, Orff's rousing piece unites the Dearborn Symphony, led by Steven Jarvi, more than a hundred voices of the Vanguard Grand Chorus, led by G. Kevin Dewey, and vocal soloists to bring to life Carmina Burana's epic meditation on fate and fortune. The selection covers a wide range of topics, as familiar in the 13th century as they are in the 21st century; 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, and lust. Whether you have heard the dramatic "O Fortuna" in popular film and television, or you know every note by memory, this impactful classic is the perfect ending to a dynamic season of great music.

The talented musicians of the Dearborn Symphony under the baton of Maestro Steven Jarvi offer something for everyone this season. Come see for yourself why we have been named "Outstanding Community Orchestra" by Detroit Music Awards, a record six times.
