Wimbledon Choral Society, ‘one of the most substantial and formidable choirs in London’, joins forces with Farnham Youth Choir (Choir of the Year winners, World and European Choir Games gold medallists) to bring you Carl Orff’s rumbustious take on the pleasures and pitfalls of medieval life, love and liquor. From the monumental opening chorus ‘O Fortuna’, the wheel of Fortune spins dizzily towards its inevitable climax.
The programme also features highlights from Farnham Youth Choir’s competition-winning repertoire.
