Bernstein arr. Huff  West Side Story - Choral Suite

Orff  Carmina Burana

Shakespeare seen through the eyes of New York’s teenage hoodlums and the earthy poetry of mediaeval scholars and clerics form this Waynflete Singers’ Summer Concert. Carmina Burana sets medieval Latin and German poetry, penned by nomadic clerics, in praise of drinking, gambling, Spring, Fortune, Venus and the physical delights of love. The strict orders of monastic life are thrown into disarray by this poetic rebellion. Shakespeare’s ‘star-cross’d lovers’ also create disarray and, through the vision of Leonard Bernstein, the teenage rebels of West Side Story form a landmark in the history of American musical theatre.

* Tickets: £20 for the concert only; £25 to include pre-concert drinks in the Warden’s garden from 7.00pm
