The Great Chiltern Come & Sing

Come & Sing Carmina Burana

This new event will be part of the 2024 Chilterns Heritage & Culture Festival, which will take place between 14 and 29 September. It will feature Tring Choral Society and other choral societies and singers from across the Chilterns on Saturday 28 September at Dean’s Hall, Berkhamsted School.

This promises to be a thrilling experience for both performers and audience. Carl Orff’s often bawdy and profane cantata includes some well-known passages used in film, TV, and advertisements. Beginning and ending with the instantly recognisable ‘O Fortuna’ and packed with exciting passages in contrasting styles and hypnotic rhythms, the piece will be performed in the magnificent setting of the historic Berkhamsted School.

The 1937 edition for voices, two pianos and percussion will be used. This will be an all-day event, culminating with an informal performance to an audience in the evening. There will be professional soloists and musicians, as well as a children’s choir from Tring Park School for the Performing Arts. The day will start at 9.30am with registration and end at approximately 7pm.  

Tickets to see the performance will be available when the Heritage & Culture Festival goes live in the next issue of Chiltern magazine.
