    Description: Carmina Burana

    Hear Carl Orff’s thrilling choral masterpiece with Human Waves, a brand new work by Elena Kats-Chernin.

    Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is the blockbuster of the choral world, the kind of music that will keep you on the edge of your seat with its rousing choruses and wicked humour. Elena Kats-Chernin’s Human Waves offers something completely new from one of Australia’s most popular composers, inspired by the rich tapestry of our migrant history. And Yuwaalaraay man James Henry paints a fond portrait of the ibis in Murrgumurrgu.
