Congratulations and Welcome to Our Newest Members from New York City

February 5, 2012, Carnegie Hall presented The Carmina Burana Choral Project, featuring more than 400 young singers from all over New York City and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, conducted by David Robertson. Now we're happy to welcome many of the project's participants to Musical Exchange! The New York Times praised their "freshness and exhilarating energy," and singers posted online about their unforgettable experiences.



Leslie Stifelman, who leads the Musical Theater project this spring, impressively prepared the chorus to sing Carl Orff's monumental work. Plus three high school composers were commissioned to write new works for chorus and orchestra based on the musical themes of Carmina Burana; these works received their world premieres at this concert! You can meet these composers in their videos below.


If you participated in The Carmina Burana Choral Project, share your favorite memories as comments below.

Caren! That is wonderful that you were able to work with these soloists. Isn't that great when you are so involved in the music that you kind of get in a trance?? The power of music! Thanks for sharing!

I participated in the concert! I was a part of the Carmina chorus. One of my favorite memories was the first rehearsal with the soloists. They were so amazing, Everyone was completely captivated and more excited than they had been before! I remember falling right into the music so deeply that I was incredibly startled when the chorus started singing again. Good thing it wasn't my time to sing!
