Brazos Valley Chorale
The BVSO season opener combines the talents of three stunning soloists, the Brenham Children’s Chorus, and the 120-voice powerhouse that is the Brazos Valley Chorale as they celebrate their 50th Anniversary season. Though Carmina Burana has been sampled in songs by the likes of Michael Jackson and Ozzy Osborne, mixed into movies from The Matrix to Shrek, and sprinkled into commercials and all forms of pop culture, chances are you have heard only the beginning or ending notes of this 24-movement masterpiece. Heralded as one of the most recognizable and iconic choral masterworks, the expanse of sound immerses the audience in dark drama, terrific power, soulful passion, and conveys an unwavering force of destiny. Join Maestro Marcelo Bussiki and our professional orchestra as we start the season with this classic work and its thrilling emotional experience.
