A Busy Month of May for Symphony Irvine: Carmina Burana, Carnegie Hall, and More

The month of May promises to be a busy one for Symphony Irvine as the orchestra prepares for its Carnegie Hall debut with the Orange Community Master Chorale (Michael Short, Conductor) and the Master Chorale of Saddleback Valley (Charles Stephenson, Conductor). Michael Short will conduct a performance of Carmina Burana by Carl Orff at the internationally-acclaimed venue in New York City on May 27 featuring the two choirs accompanied by members of Symphony Irvine with the assistance of several NYC instrumentalists.

Carnegie Hall Preview Concert

If you are unable to join us in NYC, we have scheduled a preview performance on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 4:00 PM, in the gymnasium at Rancho Santiago College. In addition to Carmina Burana, Symphony Irvine will perform Vivaldi's Concerto for Four Violins and Ottorino Respighi’s Fountains of Rome. Mike Short and Dean Anderson will conduct.

Violin soloists for the Vivaldi concerto are Symphony Irvine's Joyce Chen, Yangji Son, Stefano Stefan, and Debbie Tindle.
