PROGRAM: 

RAVEL: Bolero
Enormously popular, this hypnotic dance builds in momentum to a frenzied pitch. An excerpt of Bolero was used for the lovemaking scene in the 1980 movie 10 that starred actress Bo Derek.

ORFF: Carmina Burana
One of the most dramatic and riveting symphonic spectacles of all time. This secular—even earthy and lusty!—cantata features huge combined choral forces, stellar vocal soloists and large orchestra. Often quoted in popular culture and guaranteed to give you goose bumps!
