“The wheel of fortune turns, raising some up, casting others down.
But everyone was a winner Saturday evening at Hill Auditorium, where the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, directed by Arie Lipsky, made Carl Orff’s secular cantata “Carmina Burana” the centerpiece of its last concert of the season.”
“…what better way to demonstrate strong community ties than to feature the community’s own young artists? Those young artists, more than 200-strong along with the men of Measure for Measure, stepped up to the plate. In “Carmina,” they sang with aplomb, excellent diction, tonal sensitivity and a real feeling for Orff’s style — a tribute to mentors and conductors and to Lipsky as well.”
