Carmina Burana - Carl Orff | Rio Grande - Constant Lambert | Rhapsody in Blue - George Gershwin
We are delighted to be returning to the Fairfield Halls for what promises to be a brilliant concert, led by a performance of Carl Orff's thrilling Carmina Burana. We will be part of a 250-voice choir, along with the Croydon Philharmonic Choir and the choir of St Mary's C of E school, Oxted, and backed by the wonderful Docklands Sinfonia. We are also singing the delightful jazz-age The Rio Grande by Constant Lambert and Docklands Sinfonia will play George Gerswin's lilting Rhapsody in Blue.
