8:00pm CARMINA BURANA

The Yale Glee Club combines forces with Yale Symphony and Yale Camerata to perform one of the most popular works of the 20th century, Carl Orff’s tremendous masterwork, Carmina Burana — an instantly recognizable piece that has found been celebrated not only in concert halls, but movie soundtracks as well. The piece is Orff’s greatest triumph, and has secured itself firmly in the international repertoire since the 1930s. Complementing Orff’s epic ode to fate and passion is Schoenberg’s sublime and beautiful Verklärte Nacht, conducted by YSO assistant conductor and principal trumpet player Elias Brown.

7:00pm Cape Town Youth Choir

The Yale Glee Club is presenting the Cape Town Youth Choir, one of South Africa’s finest choral ensembles.

The Cape Town Youth Choir was founded in 1997 with the name Pro Cantu (meaning “for singing”). When they moved from Durbanville (a suburb of Cape Town) to the city center in 2011 they changed their name to “Cape Town Youth Choir”.

They have toured South Africa, Europe, Asia and the US, have won gold in competitions, and have sung in world famous venues. They love singing simple folk songs as well as challenging modern pieces. Their members are younger than 30 and (usually) older than 16 and come from all walks of life.
