Our upcoming season really does have something for everyone — from Carl Orff’s raucous Carmina Burana (with the acclaimed New Haven Symphony Orchestra to kick off Maestro Boughton’s final season in New Haven), to Mendelssohn’s iconic Elijah, and everything in between. We hope you’ll join us! Details and tickets here.
Join the FCC as we wrap up our 2018-2019 season with Felix Mendelssohn’s iconic 1846 masterpiece. Widows, queens, priests, prophets, and an angel – Elijah’s vivid biblical narrative has all the drama of an opera. Don’t miss this chance to hear Mendelssohn’s Romantic-era take on the Baroque oratorio.Details and tickets
This is the second time I’ve heard FCC perform Carmina Burana, and last evening certainly lived up to my memory of how well it was performed the last time. It is such a difficult piece rhythmically that I am impressed with the ease with which FCC went through it. In my opinion, there is nothing better than a wonderful night of great music to start the holiday season, so thank you so much!
