Event

Carmina Burana
For decades, music lovers have thronged to the concert hall to ring in the New Year in the style of Old Vienna with programs of Strauss waltzes. On December 31, 1991, the Seattle Choral Company began marking the occasion by presenting some very different but equally popular music: Carl Orff's Carmina Burana.

This setting of medieval monk's poetry might not seem an obvious choice for celebrating New Year's Eve, but upon reflection, it makes perfect sense. The work's structurebeginning and ending with an ode to the eternally circling Wheel of Fate (the famous chorus "O fortuna")nicely mirrors the experience of looking back on the past year and then forward to the new.

What's more, those medieval monks devoted a good deal of their poetry to the twin delights of love and ale, topics on the minds of many New Year's revelers by midnight!
Finally, Carmina Burana makes a big, exciting, glorious amount of noise  perfect for a New Year's Eve celebration!

Join Maestro Freddie Coleman, the Seattle Choral Company, guest instrumentalists, and soloists in a concert celebration to ring in the New Year.
Attend either the Early (7:00) or the Late (9:30) performance, depending on your evening plans.
A no-host bar will be provided in the Grand Lobby before both performances.

This year, you can extend your New Year's celebration after our show at Wild Ginger in Bellevue, just one block from Meydenbauer Center (wildginger.net, 425-495-8889). If you make reservations for dinner before or after the concert and mention "Carmina Burana," you will receive a complimentary glass of bubbly with the purchase of a dinner entrée. Also at Wild Gingerafter the 9:30 performance, you can join the members of the SCC for a no-host cast party and midnight countdown.
